Bailey Ober, who I just learned about, pitches for the Twins in place of Matt Shoemaker. This is a good decision, even if Bailey Ober is completely awful, because Matt Shoemaker was beyond completely awful.
The Astros remain a strong team, and are pitching Jose Urquiday, who has been pretty good (except for his last start).
Riding the high of walking off the Yankees, let's see if the Twins can keep themselves rolling.

Are they replaying last night's highlights?
Two hits, two runs. Swinging for the fences is so nice when it works.
Not striking out is certainly a good first step in any case
Aw, Bailey -- you gotta hold things together longer than three innings now...
Screw the AL HR lead -- going for the MLB lead tonight
well dang, that was a well placed hit off the fair pole
Decent start by Ober. He matched Shoemaker's season high in strikeouts. His pitching line for the game nearly matches Shoemaker's second start of the season on April 11. Ober gave up two fewer runs over one less inning. That game was the last time Shoemaker had an ERA under 5.48. He twice managed to get to 5.49 or 5.48 but that's his best after April 11.
Pitch your heart up and get pulled with a lead only to have the bullpen blow the opportunity to get a win under belt. Welcome to the Big Show kiddo
I couldn't get audio via MLB and Gameday, but went to CCO and finally got the audio feed.
Vulture time now
Bringer of Rain bringing the rain when it needs to be brought
Rogers couldn't pitch the top of the eighth too? Instead, let's have Shoemaker pitch two innings.
"Pitch" is a very generous description of what Matty Ballgame is doing here.
Very clever maneuver on Rocco's part to force the FO to make a move
