Raise your hands if you looked at the Twins schedule and thought this week’s tilt against the Rockies would be between two first place clubs. Anyone? The Colorado Rockies are probably one of the surprise teams of the early 2017 season (well besides the Twins) and bring a flashy 24-15 record to Target Field.
Kyle Freeland takes his 2.92 ERA up against Phil Hughes and his 4-1 record. Some forecast for storms tonight and all week but given this is the only Rockies trip to Target Field in like 6 years, I have a feeling everyone will work hard to get this game and the next two in. May have to be prepared for some long nights.
Programming Note: I will need someone to take next Tuesday's game log as I will be here next Tuesday with no wi-fi.
