Twins beat Rockies, get new Uniforms

(Minneapolis, MN) — The Minnesota Twins allowed just six hits during a 5-0 win over the Colorado Rockies at Target Field last night. Minnesota scored a run apiece in the third and fourth innings before putting the game away with a three-run eighth. Royce Lewis belted a two-run homer in his first game of the season in Minneapolis. Chris Paddack earned his fifth win after striking out six over six-and-a-third scoreless innings. The third-place Twins have won their last two games and sit at 35-31. Colorado right-hander Dakota Hudson fell to 2-8 after surrendering one earned run and one unearned run on four hits in six-and-two-thirds frames. Colorado has dropped eight of ten and is 23-43. Game two of the three-game series is tonight at 6:40 P-M.

(Minneapolis, MN) — The Minnesota Twins unveiled their new M-L-B Connect Series uniforms with a celebration at Target Field yesterday. The jerseys and pants are blue with a “ripple effect” pattern to represent the state’s waters and the tops have a white MN on the chest with yellow trim. The caps feature a state of Minnesota outline with 10,000 Lakes written on the side. A Lake Minnetonka image under the cap’s brim, a nod to Prince. The team will wear the new uniforms for Friday night against Oakland for the first time. They are now on sale in the Twins team store.
