Twins assume first in AL Central with 7-6 win against Tigers


Minnesota Twins pitcher Kenta Maeda throws to a Detroit Tigers batter during the first inning of a baseball game Wednesday, Sept. 23, 2020, in Minneapolis.


Jake Cave hit a pair of home runs, Kenta Maeda finished off his regular season with another strong start and the Minnesota Twins beat the Detroit Tigers 7-6 on Wednesday night to take over sole possession of the AL Central lead for the first time since late August.

Eddie Rosario added a two-run homer for Minnesota (35-22), which has won four straight. The Twins moved a half-game ahead of the second-place Chicago White Sox (34-22).

“We haven’t really talked about the standings or anything like that,” Cave said. “Everybody just kind of knows that our plan was to win out. Why wouldn’t you just want to win every game? That’s best-case scenario, so that’s what we’re doing these last few games.”

Bleak Winter Ahead For Central London As Workers Told Not To Come Back To The Office

The return-to-the-office plans of companies big and small and their landlords, the recovery prospects of cafés, bars and restaurants — all have been torn to shreds by the government’s announcement Tuesday that Britons should go back to working from home if they can. And with those plans go the hopes that 2020 might see a rebound for central London property owners.

“This will be devastating for a lot of businesses that were already struggling,” London Property Alliance Executive Director Charles Begley told Bisnow

Downtown Tucson will remain in the central business district.

Brian Flagg and Roxy Valenzuela walk around the block on 25th and 4th—the area the City of Tucson and South Tucson are separated.

“I see bars and restaurants coming in this direction that aren’t for the people who live in the city of South Tucson,” said Brian Flagg, who opposes a central business district.

Flagg says the differences from one side of the street to the other are stark, and something like central business district would highlight those differences even more.

“It’s like the world changes, and it’s much more low income, and I think that’s starting to change,” said Flagg.

The Dew Drop, at 2836 LaSalle St. in Central City, was a magnet for Black entertainers when segregation was the rule. It was also a family business that Jackson’s father, Frank Painia, founded in 1939. In addition to a performing area, the Dew Drop had a barber shop, a restaurant and a hotel for traveling performers who, in the Jim Crow era, could neither eat nor sleep in New Orleans’ famed establishments.
