When was the last time the Twins swept a “double-header”?
Can anyone ever remember this happening?
Probably the Senators, back in the days when Walter Johnson was around, probably they swept a double-header or two. Back then, of course, there were quite a few more double-headers than today, and they would play them at two-for-the-price-of-one, with a short break between games.
Do they still do that? I think it’s safe to say: rarely.
But I digress.
Let’s take a moment to revel in winning two in one day. Let us seize the day, make hay whilst the sun doth shine. Two wins in one day!
While we’re at it, let’s revel a bit in Rocky Colabello, 4th in the league in batting (.357) and leading the American League in RBI, with 19. Sure, sure, it’s early. But still. Rejoice a bit. We don’t get many opportunities.
And wait, what’s this? Bull Dozier, second in the AL in home runs! Five of ’em! AND tied for third in stolen bases! Five of ’em! Bull!
And still more! KYLE GIBSON, fifth in the AL in ERA, at 0.93! And Gibson again, tied for the League lead in wins, with 3!
And let’s take a little peek at the standings while we’re at it. Second place! 8-7, a half game back behind the Tigers.
Yes, today was a pretty good day.
