Twins 3, Indians 0: That's an Albatross

Hannah Foslien

Albers shines again, not allowing an earned run for the 2nd time in as many outings.

While the Los Angeles area may have Yasil Puig and Mike Trout. The Maryland/Washington DC area get to see Brcye Harper and Manny Machado. With us being in the midwest, we need our own new hero (Sorry, Joe) and it looks like we may have him in Andrew Albers. Albers allowed just two hits over nine innings baffling the Cleveland Indians on a beautiful Monday night at Target Field. The Twins got three early runs courtesy of a long ball, AGAIN! The last 22 runs scored by the Twins have come via long ball... Considering, well, ya know, we have the coaching staff we have, this is insanity! Just kiddings.. any who, Brian Dozier led off the bottom of the first with a solo blast. The second time in his career he did that, both of them were starts by guess who; Andrew Albers. Entering today Trevor Plouffe was having an abysmal 2nd half of the season, recording just seven hits in 63 at bats, with just seven total bases during that span... Well Plouffe broke out of that slump, with a two run blast in the 2nd making it a three run game. With Albers given a nice early cushion, the game was clearly over. The new front runner for prime minister of Canada took his 86mph fastball and was brilliant retiring the side in order in the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 5th, 6th, 7th and 9th. Albers will most likely face Chris Sale the next time out this weekend when the Twins welcome the Sox. Is it me, or this is the first time since Johan that im actually excited for a starting pitcher of the Twins. Only two starts, I know, but seeing 67mph breaking balls constantly is way too fun to watch.
