Streaking Twins go for sweep of White Sox

Right-hander Jake Odorizzi will try for his seventh victory in eight starts as the Minnesota Twins go for their seventh series sweep of the season on Sunday afternoon when they host the Chicago White Sox in Minneapolis.

Odorizzi (6-2, 2.38 ERA) is 1-2 with a 3.41 ERA in six career starts against the White Sox. He'll be opposed by right-hander Dylan Covey (0-3, 5.31), who is 0-2 with a 5.30 ERA in four games (two starts) against the Twins, including 0-1 with a 4.76 ERA in two career starts at Target Field.

Minnesota has the best record in baseball (35-16), and an unheralded starting pitching staff led by Odorizzi has been a major reason why. The 29-year-old hasn't allowed a run in four of his last five starts, allowing 19 hits and nine walks over 30 1/3 innings while compiling a 0.89 ERA.
