American League Central rivals meet on Saturday night in Minnesota as the Twins host the Chicago White Sox in a baseball betting game that can be seen on WGN. It is a three-team race in the Central with Chicago, Detroit and Minnesota battling for first place.

Carl Pavano has been the best pitcher for the Twins this season. He is 10-6 on the year with a 3.58 ERA. He is 5-0 in his last seven starts. Somehow he just finds a way to keep Minnesota in the game. He is 1-0 with a 4.87 ERA in his last three starts. He is 4-2 with a 2.81 ERA in his career against the White Sox.
