This is the second game of the season series between the teams. As many of you remember, the Twins won the first of a four-game series at Target Field on April 12, then saw the next three games get postponed. ... The Twins were 6-4 at Chicago last season. ... Joe Mauer has reached base in 22 of the 25 games he’s played in and is batting .316 during his five-game hitting streak. ... Logan Morrison is the only Twin with at-bats against Lopez. He’s 2-for-3 with a home run against him. ... Max Kepler is batting .318 with 10 RBI over his past 17 games.


Infielder Yoan Moncada left Wednesday’s game in the eighth inning because of a tight left hamstring suffered while running the bases. He’s listed as day to day. ... Shields is coming off a start Tuesday during which he gave up a leadoff home run but settled down to throw six shutout innings after that. ... SS Tim Anderson has developed a reputation for being an instigator. Last week he howled after connecting on a leadoff HR, drawing the ire of Royals catcher Salvador Perez.
