Storylines
1. It's "Sho Time," in LA as the series will come down to the final game and the Angels will tout their two-way talent in Shohei Ohtani today at DH.
2. In almost Johan Santana like fashion, Kenta Maeda is striking out batters at will. The Twins leader in punch-outs is off to an unreal start to 2020 with a K/9 of 15.48.
3. For Twins fans purposes, TWINGO returns tomorrow with our series with the Giants with prizes again courtesy of SotaStick. Tune in to the ballgame to get some info on how to win our second Target Field promotion of the year.
