The Minnesota Twins rookie has had a rough start to his career, but he busted out in a big way against the Chicago White Sox. Hicks clubbed a solo home run in the fourth, robbed a potential tying 2-run home run in the top of the sixth, and hit a solo home run in the bottom of the inning to help the Twins get a 10-3 win. Hicks was the 14th overall pick by the Twins in 2008 out of Wilson Classical High School in Long Beach, Calif. After five seasons in the minors, he broke camp with the big club and struggled. Hicks started off the season 2-for-48 but has picked it up in May. Monday marked his first career multi-hit game.

If you’re used to the iOOTP format, you will pick up right where you left off.  The action is pretty smooth as you’d expect and the set up is pretty much exactly...
