White Sox Top Twins 8-5 Saturday Night
After an amazing two-game start to his major league career, Twins pitcher Andrew Albers discovered that pitching in the bigs won’t always seem so easy. The White Sox rattled Albers for five runs in seven innings en route to an 8-5 Chicago win at Target Field.
Albers entered Saturday night’s game with a career starting 17 1/3 scoreless innings. He gave up a run in the first, and four more in the fourth. The Twins had several glimmers of hope for a comeback throughout the game, before Chicago’s Alejandro De Aza belted a two-run homer in the ninth to build the lead to three.
The series finale is this afternoon at 1:10 at Target Field.
