2020 Game Log Nine: Cleveland Spiders vs. Minnesota Twins (Help Wanted)

Say hey! It's baseball on Sunday (for now)! Just in case, Sunday game logs (again, for as long as they exist) are still open. If anyone would like to take them, they're all yours.

Anyway, sounds like we have the makings of a bullpen game today. If you're not watchin', hope you're having a pleasant Sunday.
