Chicago White Sox Team Report - April 27

(Sports Network) - The White Sox snapped their three-game losing streak last night and look to make it two in a row today as they face the Minnesota Twins in the finale of a three-game set at U.S. Cellular Field.

Righthander Esteban Loaiza will head to the mound for the White Sox today. With a win today, Loaiza would be the first White Sox pitcher to start with a 5-0 record since James Baldwin went 7-0 to start the 2000 season.

Loaiza was dominant in his last outing, allowing one run in 8 1/3 innings in a victory at Baltimore on Tuesday. The 31-year-old Mexican owns a 7-5 record against the Twins with an ERA of 3.78 in 12 starts.

Last night, Magglio Ordonez hit two home runs and Carlos Lee went 3-for-4 with a homer to lead the Chicago White Sox over the Minnesota Twins, 7-4.

Frank Thomas added two hits, including a home run, for Chicago, which has won for only the second time in its last seven.

Jon Garland (1-2) earned his first win of the season after throwing 5 2/3 innings and allowing two runs on four hits to go along with five strikeouts and two walks.

Garland was also ejected in the sixth inning. He hit Doug Mientkiewicz with a pitch and the benches cleared. Tempers were already hot on both sides due to Friday's game when two members of each team were plunked. Minnesota pitcher LaTroy Hawkins was also ejected in the skirmish.
