The White Sox have struggled offensively, but with the Twins' strong batting lineup and both teams' suspect bullpens, this game has a good chance of going over the total of 8 runs. Bailey Ober has a 4.12 ERA, and while Erick Fedde has been solid with a 3.13 ERA, the Twins' offense should be able to put up enough runs to push the total over 8.
