In just over an hour, the White Sox are going to try avoiding a three-game sweep to the Twins at U.S. Cellular Field. Earlier this morning, Ozzie said he wouldn't necessarily mind another loss if the Sox hit the ball for a change. “I don't want to win, I want to score,” Ozzie said. “I don't care if the score is 20-19 because it would show me we could hit. Every game for us, especially in our division, is a must-win game. But like I said yesterday, don't try to do too much. Just do what you're supposed to do, don't push it.” Heading into the game, here are some key stats: *Not surprisingly, the White Sox rank last in the AL in team batting at .186. The Indians are next at .210. *Not surprisingly, again, the Sox are third in the league with a 2.76 ERA. The Tigers are first at 2.54 and the Twins are second at 2.62. Here are today's lineups ... with the White Sox' batting averages. SOX Pierre (.150)– LF Beckham (.222) – 2B Quentin (.267) – RF Konerko (.250) – 1B Kotsay (.100) – DH Rios (.211) – CF Pierzynski (.211) – C Ramirez (.158) – SS Teahen - (.091) – 3B Buehrle – LHP TWINS Span – CF Hudson – 2B Mauer – C Morneau – 1B Cuddyer – RF Young – LF Hardy – SS Harris – DH Punto – 3B Blackburn – RHP
