Frozen out at home: Twins drop to 0-7 after falling to White Sox


Chicago White Sox 4

Minnesota Twins 1

The Minnesota Twins dropped their seventh straight game to open the 2016 season, falling to the Chicago White Sox 4-1 at Target Field Monday afternoon. It's the fifth straight home opening loss for the Twins.


1. Gibson off target

Twins starter Kyle Gibson (0-2) didn't have his best stuff, but he battled through 5.2 innings. Gibson allowed 3 runs (1 earned) on 6 hits, while walking 3 and striking out 3.


2. Cold opener

Cool temperatures at Target Field in April are nothing new for the Twins or their fans. But a hearty sellout crowd of more than 40,000 braved temperatures in the low 40s, with a cold northwest wind gusting between 15 and 30 mph.


3. Bats stay silent

Minnesota's struggles at the plate continued on Monday. Minnesota put together just 6 hits, and the strikeouts continued to pile up – especially for young slugger Miguel Sano.


Making matters worse, the Twins were 0-for-6 with runners in scoring position and stranded 14 runners on base.
