Twins look to rebound vs. last-place White Sox

After dropping two-of-three to the Baltimore Orioles, the Twins (17-17) look to bounce back against the Chicago White Sox.

Minnesota and Chicago begin a three-game set at Target Field, with a pair of left-handers starting Monday night.

For the Twins, Pedro Hernandez (1-0, 5.96 ERA) might be pitching to keep his spot in the rotation. In his last start, Hernandez was clobbered by Boston, giving up six runs through two innings. Hernandez, acquired from the White Sox last July, will also be making his first career start against his former team.

The White Sox counter with lefty Hector Santiago (1-1, 1.69), who is making his third start of the year. In his past two starts, he's allowed just one run with 14 strikeouts.

Despite Chicago's 15-20 record, White Sox pitchers are second in the American League with a combined 3.30 ERA. Minnesota's staff ranks 11th, with a 4.25 combined ERA.

One year ago today: Minnesota was 10-24, in fifth place in the AL Central -- eight games out of first place.
