The Minnesota Twins are teeing off on the Chicago White Sox, and Oswaldo Arcia is leading the way.
Arcia has a chance to become the first Twin in 49 years to homer in four straight games against the White Sox as visiting Minnesota goes for a six-game winning streak over its AL Central rivals Saturday.
The Twins (51-62) are batting .303 with 14 homers and 32 runs while winning five straight games against Chicago (43-71).
Minnesota got off to a powerful start in this four-game set, connecting for four homers to win 7-5 in the opener of a day-night doubleheader Friday. It swept the twinbill with three more long balls, including Arcia's solo shot in the 10th inning of a 3-2 victory.
Arcia also hit a solo shot in the eighth inning of the opener.
