Happy Sunday! This afternoon, the Twins will take on Toronto in the rubber match of this three game weekend series. To try to take 2 out of 3, the Twins will hand the ball to Devin Smeltzer (2-0, 1.50 ERA), who has been quite good in the small sample size of games he’s pitched in this year. His mound opponent will be Kevin Gausman (5-3, 2.51 ERA), who has been very good for Toronto, albeit having appeared in 6 more games than Smeltzer. Is this technically an “ace-off”? We’ll find out.
