Can the Twins right the ship?

Know Thine Enemy: Brew Crew Ball

Everyone hanging in there? As we all know, the Twins have lost four in a row to the Pirates and Royals. It’s not ideal. Today they will start a series with the 6-7 Milwaukee Brewers in hopes of getting back on track. Luckily the Twins will have their ace on the mound...

When I say “best pitcher in baseball” who comes to mind and why is it Randy Dobnak? Perhaps it is due to him having an MLB best ERA since his debut last year. Or maybe just because of the facial hair. Eitner way, Dobnak is on the mound tonight so hopefully his success continues.

Here are tonights lineups. For the Twins, Mitch Garver gets his second straight off day but otherwise everything is pretty normal. Hopefully Buxton can stay hot and help lead this offense. The Brewers offense has struggled as much as the Twins and if they can keep Christian Yelich quiet then they should be alright.
