Twingo Night
Another home-stand means more Twingo with merch given away courtesy of SotaStick. How it works is below there will be a link to Twingo cards and you can browse all five boards and message on Twitch which one of the five boards you want to use before first pitch.

 

Catch-up
The Twins took game one of the series behind a terrific start from the AL's leader in ERA in Homer Bailey, and yesterday the man one place behind Bailey in Lucas Giolitio led the Chi Sox to a 2-1 victory. Tonight's game will feature Dallas Keuchel squaring off for the first time against Minnesota for Chicago.

Storylines
1. It's #WorldTurtleDay and in the lineup card for Minnesota, La Tortuga, looking to help the Twins take a leg up in the series tonight.
2. We spent a good amount of time talking about Lucas Giolito but now we turn to yet another great starter in Dallas Keuchel. This will now mark the 3rd starter in this series who is within the top 10 in ERA in the American League (Bailey and Giolitio the other two).
3. Twingo returning tonight so if you want to play be sure to tune in during the pre-game to register your card!
