Know Thine Enemy: Covering the Corner

Since the last time yours truly penned a game thread/recap, the roller coaster that is the Minnesota Twins has reached Everest-like heights and Hades-esque lows.

Indeed, Byron Buxton returned and in the span of 60 hours had crushed a homer and a double, legged out a pair of infield singles, and looked for all the world as if he was about to lead the Twins on a 40-game winning streak en route to an MVP and, very likely, a World Series Championship.

Alas, he capped the 60 hours by being hit on the hand with a pitch, and well, we know the rest of the story.

After a weird Wednesday off day, the Twins remained at home to host Cleveland in a matchup of the streaking Jose Berrios and J.C. (not Adalberto) Mejia.

Thanks to the starting pitching matchup, the Twins are actually favored to win this one over at Wynnbet at -200.

Enjoy the game!
