The MLB record for scoreless innings to start a career is 38, set by Brad Ziegler in 2008.

So Albers probably won't get there, especially since he's not a reliever and doesn't get to start fresh almost every inning, but this is very impressive nonetheless.

Hard to believe he's actually improving on what he has done in AAA.

One tendency Albers has shown this season at both levels is the ability to go deep into ballgames. Nice skill that....

Someone on MLB network said tonight that Albers now holds this record for the Twins, and that previously Swarzak held this record.

the Twins note is for starters. Theilbar had a longer streak earlier this year (although some inherited runners scored so to me his streak is a little less impressive)

I believe the record was for a starter (which Swarzak was at the start).

The Twins also set an MLB record for having their last 22 runs come via the long ball.

Really? That is wild.

Imagine some kid a few years from now looking through records and finding that one. He or she would probably think, "Wow, I bet those 2013 Twins were quite the sluggers".

That makes me grin.

Yu Darvish has as many games where he has struck out 14 batters as the twins have total games where their starters have. Struck out 7

So we're agreed that he'll trow a perfect game if/when he pitches against the Astros? :go:
