So right about here, I'd tell you that as of me writing this, the Twins are 4.5 games back from the A.L. Central title and 1.5 games back from a Wild Card slot with 49 games left, but thankfully the Twins front office, in their infinite wisdom have given up on this season, sparing us from the emotional roller coaster ride of so-called pennant chases in favor of some kind of perpetual "playing competitive baseball" machine. So I won't mention that.

Pitching tonight for the Brewers will be righty Zach Davies (RHP, 13-5, 4.18 ERA). In his last start, Davies pitched seven innings shutting out the Rays and holding them to one hit and two walks. He's pitched at least seven innings in his last four starts.

In lieu of Jaime Garcia, and pushing back Kyle Gibson a day, will be southpaw Dietrich Enns, making his MLB debut. Dietrich comes to the Twins via Rochester and Dunder-Mifflin's own Scranton-Wilkes-Bury. He throws a fastball in the low 90's and a slurve. You can find him on both Twitter and IG using @DietrichEnns.

I tried to find a band from Wisconsin for a Song of the Day, but came up empty, so instead here's a Packers fan ranting about a sales girl at Bed, Bath & Beyond or some such.
