Minnesota Twins Team Report - April 28

(Sports Network) - The Minnesota Twins ran into one of the hottest pitchers in the American League on Sunday in Esteban Loaiza and suffered a 3-1 loss to the Chicago White Sox.

Rick Reed (1-4) took the loss after allowing three runs -- two earned -- on three hits. He struck out five and walked one.

Reed is now 1-5 lifetime against the White Sox, but he was able to retire 17 of the final 19 batters he faced on Sunday.

A.J. Pierzynski drove in the lone run for Minnesota, which has now lost seven of its last eight. The Twins will have an off day on Monday and will resume play again on Tuesday against the Tampa Bay Devil Rays.

The Twins never threatened again after scoring in the fourth inning on Sunday. Six different Minnesota players all notched a hit in the contest.

Southpaw Kenny Rogers gets the call for the Twins on Tuesday against the Devil Rays, as he attempts to record his third victory of the year. In his last outing, Rogers was tagged for four earned runs and seven hits in six innings of work.

Rogers (2-1) has been able to post a career record of 5-1 against the Devil Rays and has an ERA of just 2.57. In 49 innings of work against Tampa Bay he has amassed 33 strikeouts, while surrendering only 21 walks.
