Game Thread: Rockies @ Twins 6/24/22 7:10 PM


The Twins entertain the Rockies tonight. It is Colorado's first visit since 2017, so previous matchups probably don't matter much. The Rockies are 30-40 in the tough NL West. They feature former Twin CJ Cron at first base. He leads the team in homers and RBI. I frankly don't recognize many of their players other than shortstop Jose Iglesias. Starting for the Rockies is German Marquez, who has poor numbers, but who doesn't when you pitch half of your games at Coors Field. 

The Twins are coming off losing two straight series, first losing two of three in Arizona and then losing two late-inning leads to Cleveland and surrendering first place to the Guardians. For the third straight game Byron Buxton is out of the lineup. Also out are Trevor Larnach and Gary Sanchez. Nick Gordon, Gilberto Celestino and Jose Miranda (apparently Rocco reads TD!) are in the lineup. Dylan Bundy hopes to back up his eight inning performance in Arizona this time against another NL West club (Colorado). I expect many runs to be scored and the winnner will be the team that makes the most of their opportunities. The Twins are virtually tied with Cleveland. The Guardians face the Red Sox this weekend while the Twins wrap up their homestand against Colorado. It is an opportunity to retake the lead and the Twins will being going on the road after this weekend.

Encouraging start. The Rockies offense is horrible on the road. 

Why is that? I mean not just the Rockies, but what causes teams to slump on the road? Travel fatigue, uncomfortable feeling, strange surroundings, angle of the sun...

I once attended a Twins-Yankees game at the Metrodome in which Don Mattingly recorded 21 put-outs.  CJ Cron is starting well toward that mark.

Was he the only guy in the field? I won''t be surprised if the Yankees went with only one fielder and a pitcher. You know, they never have any trouble beating the Twins.

That Twins team won the World Series (1987).  And it was actually 22.
