The Twins haven’t won back-to-back games since June 11th; they’ve lost consecutive games once since June 2nd. However, after losing three of their last four, including a disappointing series loss to the Cleveland Guardians, you would think that Minnesota had plummeted, somehow, into sixth place in a five-team division.

The real truth is still pretty promising:


The White Sox continue to tread water, leaving a bit of breathing room behind Minnesota. As for the Guardians, they’re just a few percentage points ahead, with another head-to-head battle coming up next week.

As for the Rockies, they haven’t already won the series despite twirling a 1-0 shutout in Friday’s opener. Tonight, they’ll trot out Antonio Senzatela to face a Twin lineup that’s just lost another player, again.

Meanwhile, Chris Archer continues his quest to cheat the gods of fielding independent pitching, bringing a 3.44 ERA and a 5.01 FIP into tonight’s game. Is this the night that his 4.0 BB/9 catches up with him? Or will he continue to outrun math?

Speaking of running, peep that sweet Byron Buxton CF content in tonight’s lineup.
