Bartolo Colon will pitch against Cleveland as a member of the Twins for the first time Tuesday. The first time he pitched for Cleveland against the Twins was more than 20 years ago — July 13, 1997. He pitched five innings and gave up three runs, getting the victory.
If the Twins are going to make a serious run at not just a playoff berth but the AL Central title, this three-game series against Cleveland at Target Field is of vital importance. Game 1 is Tuesday at 7 p.m. on FSN.
"Sounds like Blair Walsh is trying to convince himself. I acknowledge it's one of the most mentally demanding jobs in pro sports; I'm just glad he's doing it for someone else. Good luck, Blair (except when you play us)."
