Minnesota Twins Team Report - April 27

(Sports Network) - The Twins lost a wild one last night to the White Sox by a score of 7-4. Minnesota looks to take the rubber match today at U.S. Cellular Field.

Minnesota, which has dropped seven of its last eight games, will send 37-year- old Rick Reed to the mound. He will be making his fifth start of the season.

The righthander was hammered in his last outing, allowing 11 runs on 10 hits in 4 1/3 innings in a loss at the Metrodome to the Yankees on Monday.

Reed has had trouble against the White Sox in his career, posting a record of 1-4 with an ERA of 5.46 in six starts.

Last night, Jacque Jones finished 2-for-5 and A.J. Pierzynski and Corey Koskie each hit solo home runs for the Twins. Michael Cuddyer, a pinch-hitter, also hit a two-run homer.

Minnesota, which posted a 6-1 win in Friday's opener, will not be involved in a series sweep for the first time this season. The Twins had either swept or been swept in their first seven series of the campaign.

Kyle Lohse (2-3) was saddled with the loss after lasting just 4 1/3 innings. He allowed five runs on seven hits and struck out eight with two walks.
