LEADING OFF: Twins run into extra trouble, Chisox rake LHPs

The Twins have lost three times this season — all of them in 10th inning with the automatic runner on second base. Seattle topped the Twins 4-3 in the 10th on Saturday, helped when Minnesota reliever Taylor Rogers couldn’t get a clean grip on a bunt. Twins manager Rocco Baldelli says small ball is making a big difference. Also, AL MVP José Abreu and the White Sox will try to win their 18th straight game facing a left-handed starter. That would tie the major league record set by Atlanta from 2004-05. The White Sox get their chance when they host lefty Mike Minor and the Royals.
