September 2018

The Minnesota Twins open the final month of 2018 in the heart of Texas, playing a weekend set with the Rangers before opening a 3-game series against the Astros on Labor Day.

The Twins then go on their last tough stretch of the season, playing 13 straight days, starting with a six-game homestand, where the Royals come to town for a weekend series and the Yankees follow into town for a Monday through Wednesday series.

The Twins take off after the Yankees for a pair of divisional series on the road, first a four-game series in Kansas City, followed by a three-game series in Detroit.

The Oakland Athletics will be the final non-divisional team that the Twins face in 2018 when they travel to Oakland for a three-game series.

The Twins close out the season with six games at home, hosting first the Detroit Tigers and then the Chicago White Sox, two teams that should be in a rebuilding process in 2018, so if the Twins are needing any final positioning for playoffs or a playoff push in the last week, this is an ideal last week.

All in all, the Minnesota Twins look to have a fairly favorable schedule. I do like the idea of getting the regular season done before October so the postseason can get underway earlier!

Now, let’s get the Twins into THIS postseason!!
