After winning in Pittsburgh while the snow was flying on Wednesday, the Twins come home to Minnesota and might be playing in the snow again.
The forecast for Thursday in Minneapolis is cloudy with a chance of snow and baseball. The Twins will play their home opener at Target Field on Thursday and if they are lucky, the high temp will be around 40 degrees.
No problem for these Twins, as they just won 7-3 in the snow in Pittsburgh on Wednesday. Brian Dozier hit another home run and Eduardo Escobar had two RBI in the win and the Twins will now head back to Minneapolis where Jack Frost just dumped eight inches of snow on the metro area Tuesday but the grass at Target Field still looks like this.
As far as the actual game itself goes, Kyle Gibson will be starting for the Twins and did not give up a hit in his first start against Baltimore. Pitching for Seattle will be James Paxton, who is currently 0-1 and has a 11.57 ERA. Although it’s still early in the season, the Twins have looked pretty good on offense, but their starting pitching has been outstanding. As previously mentioned, Gibson didn’t give up a hit, Jose Berrios threw a three hit, complete game shutout, the first shutout of his career and Jake Odorizzi went six and didn’t give up a run in his first start.
Needless to say, it has been a good start to the season for the Twins, lets see if they can keep winning. Even if it is in the snow for a few more days.
