Carlos Correa's plantar fasciitis in his left foot has escalated, resulting in a complete tear to the central cortex of the fascia and the discomfort that led to his placement on the 10-day injured list on Wednesday. Nevertheless, the Twins maintain their confidence in the shortstop's availability for postseason games. Interim manager Jayce Tingler expressed strong optimism about Correa's playoff readiness, and the shortstop himself left no room for doubt in his belief. This assurance comes as the Twins approach the brink of clinching an American League Central title, following a dramatic 5-3 come-from-behind victory over the Reds in Wednesday's series finale at Great American Ball Park.

Overcoming an early departure of starting pitcher Gavin Williams due to knee soreness, the Cleveland Guardians secured a three-run advantage by the fourth inning and triumphed over the AL Central-leading Minnesota Twins with a 4-2 victory on Tuesday night. Despite leading second-place Cleveland by six games, Minnesota struggled, going 0 for 9 with runners in scoring position and leaving three runners stranded on third base. Royce Lewis of the Twins managed a solo home run in the fourth inning, building on his grand slams from his previous two games. In the opening frame, Williams retired Lewis with a bases-loaded popup, but he had to exit the game due to knee pain caused by rain. Hunter Gaddis (2-1) stepped in as his replacement and conceded just one run over three innings. Following Gaddis, Sam Hentges (two innings), Trevor Stephan (one inning), and Nick Sandlin (one inning) provided scoreless relief.
"You don't just learn to hit the other way. If I'm slapping singles down the line, am I still Joey Gallo? Am I still productive? I can't try to play to that, because it's not me, and I like to play in the major leagues. I get paid to drive guys in and hit the ball out of the ballpark." -Joey GalloAI Sports Predictions

Throughout the season, there has been a prevailing notion that the team emerging victorious in the AL Central would potentially be the vulnerable entry in the American League postseason. The Minnesota Twins, however, might beg to differ. The Twins have managed to create a noticeable gap between themselves and the mediocrity characterizing the other teams in their division. With a string of four consecutive wins, they currently hold a 4 1/2 game lead over Cleveland. Impressively, their run differential stands at a respectable plus-47, surpassing even the differentials of Philadelphia and San Francisco — two teams currently in postseason positions in the National League.
Alex Kirilloff fell just short of hitting for the cycle, Bailey Ober rebounded after a challenging start, and the Minnesota Twins secured a 10-3 victory against the Seattle Mariners on Tuesday night. With the win, Minnesota (49-47) maintains a 1 1/2-game lead over the Cleveland Guardians in the AL Central standings, having won four of their last five games. On the other hand, Seattle (47-47) has lost three of their five games since the All-Star break. Ober (6-4) encountered some difficulties in the first inning, allowing three runs on six hits, including a two-run home run. However, he showcased efficiency in the remaining five innings, giving up just one more hit. Twins manager Rocco Baldelli praised Ober's performance, stating, "To go six innings after a challenging first inning is quite remarkable. It played a significant role in our victory, as Seattle didn't pose much of a threat after the initial inning."
