I'm starting to feel like May and June were just a mirage and even if this Twins team makes the playoffs it will just be setting up another one and done disappointment. But I'm gloomy and melancholy like that sometimes. I can't say I'm enthused to stay up late and watch a game that starts so close to bedtime, so I'll probably be skipping this one. I probably won't be alone.
With a 7-3 record and a 2.89 ERA and 73 strikeouts, young Joe Ryan takes the mound for the Twins tonight. He's opposed by southpaw Blake Snell (2-5, 4.75 ERA, 71 K). So there you go.
