Here’s to Chris Colabello.
He hit his first major league home run yesterday, a two run shot in the 13th inning, as the Twins steal a game from the Mariners, 3-2. Colabello’s the 29 year old rookie who has had a long career in independent league baseball before being “discovered” by the Twins. He was hitting .354 with 24 HR in AAA ball this season when the Twins called him up. Last night the Twins scored a run in the 9th to tie the game at 1, and Colabello’s blast was the game-winner.
Way to go, Colabello!
And hey, the Twins have been playing some good ball since the all-star break!
