Game 152: twins @ tigers

Sad news. Eduardo Escobar isn't leading the majors in doubles anymore.

Also, the Twins COULD still finish the season at .500. They'll have to win all eleven games, but it could happen.

They've started an opener today, Gabriel Moya, with Gonsalves coming later. I'm still not entirely sure how I feel about the opener idea, but it's here, and we've been sort of "meh" at it so far.

And now Grossman scores! 1-0 Twins. Let's keep that going.
