Game #TheSeasonContinues: Twins v. Brewers

The Twins seem to have the Brewers' number this year, if it wasn't for the combined efforts of Bad Colomé and Bad Dobnak on opening day,  we'd be looking at the possibility of a season sweep. Instead,  as the saying goes, we'll have to settle for 5-1 if they get a win today.

Josh Donaldson is doing well.  In the last 5 series he's played 14 games in a row while hitting .309/.377/.582 which is in the rarified air that we call "a higher OPS than Jorge Polanco" for that time.

Luis Arraez has 365 plate appearances in 129 team games. If he goes 17 for 38 today, he would qualify for, and take the lead in, the AL batting race. His .303 average is 5th best in the league among those with more than 175 PA.

Griffin Jax is pitching today, bouncing back from a rough start against Boston. He had strung together a few good starts before that, and he won't be facing the Red Sox today so I choose optimism.

    1. The only thing I knew about him before this year is that he was suspended last season for throwing at Manny Machado. It was retaliation for Fernando Tatis hitting a grand slam on a 3-0 pitch in a blowout game.
