The Twins are crappy. They are perpetual losers.

May 23 vs. Minnesota

Short Take: The Sox expose the “fundamentally-sound” Twins for the bums they are in a lopsided 6-0 victory.

Off the top, let’s get one thing straight: The Minnesota Twins do not “own the White Sox.” If anything, the Sox own the Twins. Dating back to last year, the South Siders have now won nine of the last 12 meetings against lowly Minnesota after Wednesday night’s 6-0 thrashing of the aforementioned Hostess cream puffs.

Let it also be said the Twins are not “fundamentally sound” in any way, shape or fashion. Minnesota committed three errors Wednesday and got absolutely owned by Sox left-hander Chris Sale (5-2), who tossed seven innings of shutout ball to pick up the victory.

The Sox took advantage of the Twins’ ineptitude from the very start. Not-so-fundamentally-sound Minnesota second baseman Jamey Carroll booted a routine double play ball off the bat of Gordon Beckham in the bottom of the first inning, opening the door for the Sox to start the scoring on an RBI single by Adam Dunn.

The South Siders increased their lead to 3-0 in the fourth when right fielder Alex Rios hit a two-run homer off Minnesota loser Scott Diamond (3-1). The Twins really started to show how crappy they are in the sixth inning. After Paul Konerko led off with a single, Darin Mastroianni — the perpetual losers’ right fielder — dropped a routine fly off the bat of Rios. Moments later, A.J. Pierzynski delivered an RBI double to make it 4-0. Later in the inning, Orlando Hudson hit an RBI grounder with the bases loaded to put the Sox ahead 5-0. Konerko capped the scoring with a solo home run in the seventh inning.

Sale was in complete command of this game. He allowed only two hits and walked just two over his seven innings. He struck out six and was only in trouble once. The crappy, perpetual losers had runners at first and second with no outs in the fourth, but Sale induced Josh Willingham to hit into a double play and struck out the injury-prone Justin Morneau to prevent any damage. After that, Minnesota never threatened again as Jesse Crain and Matt Thornton both worked scoreless innings of relief.

The Sox conclude this three-game set Thursday night at 7:10. Phil Humber (1-2, 5.31 ERA) will be on the mound for the South Siders. He’ll be opposed by right-hander Cole DeVries. You can watch all the action on Comcast SportsNet.

KW Appreciates The Game:
I appreciate that Paul Konerko is batting .381 to lead the league in hitting.
