The Minnesota Twins are back in another funk, having lost four straight games and five of their last six.

On Wednesday evening, Baily Ober will take the hill against the Boston Red Sox. The Sox will be throwing Nick Pivetta in Game 2 of the series at Fenway Park.

Ober continues to improve. In three August starts, the rookie has given up just five earned runs 16 13 innings with 14 strikeouts and only two walks — good for a 2.76 ERA for the month. After a wild performance from fellow rookie Griffin Jax on Tuesday night, a reasonably under-control showing from Ober would be much appreciated.

Pivetta was knocked out by the New York Yankees after just 1 23 innings last time out. He gave up four earned runs and walked three. For the season, Pivetta has a 4.43 ERA in 126 innings pitched.

Enjoy the game!
