Aaron Hicks is off to a decent start

Posted by: Suzanne Solheim Updated: April 3, 2014 - 1:48 PM

Wednesday's 7-6, extra-inning loss to the Chicago White Sox sucked more than usual, considering the Twins worked hard to rally before Glen Perkins blew the save and Samuel Deduno pretty much imploded. Still, something promising seems to be emerging from this cold and windy series.

Heading into this afternoon's finale, Aaron Hicks is 4-for-7, including 2-for-3 with two runs scored on Monday before going 2-for-4 with two walks in yesterday's loss. It took him 55 at bats to muster four hits last season. Sure, it's a small sample from only two games, but encouraging nonetheless considering his 2013 performance (or lack thereof).

We'll see if the Twins can at least avoid the sweep today before heading to Cleveland this weekend to take on the Indians.
