Sánchez, Gray Power Minnesota Twins Past Cleveland
After hearing that pitching coach Wes Johnson has taken a job with LSU and will be done after Thursday's game, Sonny Gray went out and delivered 7 solid shutout innings.
When they arrived in Cleveland on Sunday night ahead of the five-game series, the first-place Twins were rocked by the news that pitching coach Wes Johnson is leaving to take over at LSU.
“I’m happy for him. I really am,” manager Rocco Baldelli said before the game. “This is the best move for Wes. I love him and I love everything that he’s done for this organization. We’re all going to miss him.”
The Twins will start Devin Smeltzer in Game 1 on Tuesday against Zach Plesac. Minnesota is recalling rookie Josh Winder to start the second game against Cleveland rookie Konnor Pilkington.
