White Sox Game Notes For Friday @ Minnesota

Willy Garcia, Avisail Garcia and Leury Garcia will be the first outfield trio to all share the same last name when the White Sox take the field against the Minnesota Twins at Target Field in Minnesota tonight. Chicago had just two runners: Omar Narvaez singled with one out in the third and Avisail Garcia walked leading off the fourth.

WHITE SOX KEY TRENDS: The White Sox are 1-4 in Quintana's last five road starts against the Twins and are 0-4 in his last four outings overall versus Minnesota.

Left fielder Willy Garcia was recalled from Triple-A Charlotte to fill in while Melky Cabrera is on paternity leave.

This little wrinkle is reminscent of the Alou brothers - Matty, Felipe and Jesus - who played in the same outfield three times for the Giants.

If you want to see history, make sure to tune in to Comcast Sports Net Chicago at 7:10 Friday night for first pitch.

Minnesota Twins' Eduardo Escobar, right, ducks as Chicago White Sox second baseman Carlos Sanchez completes the double play after the force of Escobar at second in the fifth inning of a baseball game Saturday, April 15, 2017, in Minneapolis.

"That will be fun", Willy Garcia said through a translator before hitting a double in his first big league at-bat during a a href='https://apnews.com/2d04c370765c422d881c77b5225655e1/Davidson's-HR-lifts-3-Garcias, -White-Sox-over-Twins-2-1'2-1 victory/a over the Twins.

Adalberto Mejia gave up one run on four hits with four strikeouts and three walks in five innings for the Twins. He generally looked out of sync and uncomfortable against Mejia, a guy who the Sox hammered in his debut and who struggled with his control Friday night. And Todd Frazier, who missed two games in Cleveland with illness, is back in the lineup at designated hitter.

The Twins send RHP Ervin Santana (2-0, 0.69) to the mound to face White Sox LHP Jose Quintana (0-2, 6.17) in the second of a three-game series.
