The Minnesota Twins entered Wednesday night's game against the Boston Red Sox with a 6½-game lead over Cleveland in the American League Central. Those two sides have six remaining head-to-head matchups, but barring a complete collapse (in those games or otherwise) the Twins seem likely to win their first division title since the 2010 season.
Unfortunately, Wednesday did provide the Twins some reason for trepidation about their chances of a deep postseason run -- and not just in the form of them checking out the New York Yankees' or Houston Astros' Baseball-Reference pages. Rather, the Twins got another clunker of a start from Jose Berrios, who yielded six runs on eight hits in five innings. Berrios gave up two home runs, both to Red Sox outfielder Mookie Betts.
