The suddenly resurgent Twins (playing a top-notched team like Atlanta must have whipped them into shape) took on the division-leading Indians last night.....and spanked them. Kepler went deep three times and knocked in 6, while Polanco also had a nice night, driving in 3. Twins roll the Indians, 12-5.

Again, we all know the rules, but in case someone is new:
-No discussion of politics or religion
-No feeding of the trolls
-Keep the bad language to a minimum (using the spoiler tags, if you must)
-Speaking of which, if discussing a newer show or movie, please use spoiler tags
-No pictures that could potentially get someone fired or in serious trouble at their place of employment
-If you can't disagree in a civil manner, feel free to go away
-While navigating the open thread, just assume it's sarcasm
-This isn't a male version of The View, so leave the gender hatred at the door
With that, the beer light is on and the bar is open. Belly up & tie one on. Don't forget to tip your waitress, & try the pickled hog maw.
