White Sox ride hot rotation into series with Twins

The Chicago White Sox will go for their fourth win in a row Tuesday night when they open a three-game series against the visiting Minnesota Twins.

Chicago is coming off a three-game sweep on the road against the Kansas City Royals. The White Sox have climbed to first place in the American League Central despite a turbulent start and injuries to key players such as Eloy Jimenez and Luis Robert.

The starting rotation has been a huge reason for the White Sox's success. Entering Tuesday, Chicago's starters have combined to go 14-5 with a 2.66 ERA, which ranks No. 1 in the majors. Opponents are hitting .196 off the group, which has 193 strikeouts in 172 2/3 innings.
