ESPN has announced that the Twins game against the Baltimore Orioles on Memorial Day, May 31st, will be nationally televised on the network as part of their “Holiday Baseball” triple-header. First pitch is scheduled for noon Central, and it will be the first game showcased on ESPN that day, followed by Red Sox-Astros at 3pm and Pirates-Royals at 7pm.

From the official ESPN press release:

ESPN will televise a Memorial Day tripleheader on Monday, May 31, beginning at 1 p.m. ET. Approximately ten hours of MLB game coverage begins with the Minnesota Twins and Nelson Cruz visiting the Baltimore Orioles and Cedric Mullins in a full national ESPN telecast.

This will be Minnesota’s fifth game on a national broadcast this season, and the second on ESPN. So far, the Twins are 2-0 in national TV games this year, first getting a 15-6 win in Detroit on ESPN on April 5th, and then beating the Royals at Target Field 9-1 on FS1 on April 30th. Let’s hope this trend of the Twins winning nationally broadcast games continues, with three more coming up in the next three weeks.
