September 3rd-5th Minnesota heads to Boston
Easily one of the toughest opponents the Twins have on the remaining schedule, Boston should be in the thick of the playoff hunt. While it may be difficult to catch the Yankees, they are only two games back of a wild card berth as things currently stand. After winning last year’s World Series, they certainly will want to make sure they have a chance to defend their title.
The Twins meanwhile will begin a rather difficult 12-game stretch kicking things off with the Red-Sox. Following that, they’ll get the Indians and Nationals at home before heading back to Cleveland to finish up the season series with the Indians. The schedule is actually on the Twins side from there on out with games against the White-Sox, Royals, and Tigers remaining. Teams the Twins should be able to handle.
The Twins should be in a great position if they kick this stretch of games off with a series win, or better yet, a sweep. That’s why it’s imperative to kick off that brutal 12-game stretch with a solid showing in Fenway against the reigning World Series champs.
All 3 games will begin at 6:10 central and should be must-see television or must-listen radio thanks to the great Cory Provus. Seriously, Twins fans, if you haven’t paid attention, Provus is quietly and quickly becoming one of the best in baseball, but we’ll save that for another day.
