Game 36: Twins at Angels

Hot rookie starter on rookie starter action!

Know Thine Enemy: Halos Heaven

THERE WILL BE NO HAPPINESS UNTIL WE DESTROY THE ANGELS! Sports team names are weird when you think about it! Anyway, localized rookie phenom Fernando Romero will attempt to impose his strict no-run policy upon the Angel's offense. The Twins hitters backing him up have a tall order as they need to score runs against globalized rookie phenom Shohei Ohtani.

The rewards for victory, however, are bountiful. The Twinkies find themselves just a half-game out of the AL Central lead as well as one win from being .500. Those two things don't usually mix, but we live in a brave new world of Midwestern mediocrity. Mideiocrity. Or a better pun.
