Phil Miller covered three seasons of Twins baseball, but that was at a different ballpark for a different newspaper. Now Miller returns to the baseball beat after joining the Star Tribune as the Gopher football writer in 2010, and he won't miss the dingy dome for a minute. In addition to the Twins and Gophers, Miller covered the Utah Jazz and the NBA for six years at The Salt Lake Tribune.

Coming off a three-game sweep of Cleveland, the Twins will try to snap their five-game losing streak against the first-place White Sox on Monday night at Target Field.

It’ll be a battle of rookies, as Cole De Vries pitches for the Twins, and Jose Quintana for the White Sox.

Of course, much of our attention will be focused toward Tuesday's game, when Francisco Liriano is scheduled to face the Twins. Jason Gonzalez is out here helping with our coverage.
