Minnesota Twins Lose Opener in Chicago 5-3
Major League Baseball is back and today the Minnesota Twins hoped to put the last two horrible seasons behind them and get some wins under their belt early to start the season. Perhaps Wednesday will work.
In their season opener Monday in Chicago, the soft hitting Twins did score 3 runs but newly acquired starting pitcher Ricky Nolasco gave up all 5 White Sox runs in just 6 innings. Nolasco was tagged for 10 hits, including two home runs to Alejandro De Aza who had just 17 all of last season.
The Twins will have Tuesday off, then will look to rebound on Wednesday for game 2 of the opening 3-game series in Chicago.
