The Twins are in first place, which is weird but I dont hate it. If you havent been paying much attention to the A.L. Central this season it might surprised you that the Minnesota Twins have been playing good baseball so far in 2017. FanGraphs ranks the Twins offense as 9th best in baseball so far this season, and the team is being led by Miguel Sano in that department.
The Colorado Rockies have already assured themselves of no worse than a .500 record on their longest road trip of the season, and they could guarantee a winning trip with a victory in the second game of a four-game series against the Philadelphia Phillies on Tuesday night. After winning two of three against the Minnesota Twins and then the Cincinnati Reds to start the 10-game trip, the Rockies started well in Philadelphia on Monday night, getting seven strong innings from rookie Jeff Hoffman in a 8-1 victory. Now they will turn to another rookie to try to keep the momentum going.
