* The Chicago White Sox haven’t been swept in a home series of three or more games since August 18-20, 2014 against the Baltimore Orioles. That’s 41 straight series (including this current series) without being swept, the longest active streak in the majors.

* Carlos Rodon sports a 2.75 ERA against AL Central opponents this season, compared to a 5.16 ERA against the rest of MLB. While Rodon has allowed a slightly higher batting average to division opponents (.289 vs. .285), the difference in batting average allowed with runners in scoring position is huge, a .167 average versus the AL Central and .425 versus everyone else.

* On Tuesday, Brian Dozier had his second career two home run game against the White Sox, both while a member of the Twins. Dozier is one of seven second basemen in history with multiple two-home run games against the White Sox, and one of five with multiple two-home run games against the White Sox with a single team.

* Nearly 80.0 percent of Todd Frazier’s extra base hits this season have been home runs (78.6 percent to be exact). Frazier is almost on pace to break the MLB record for percentage of a player’s extra base hits being home runs, a record currently held by former Twins great Harmon Killebrew (80.3 percent in 1964).
