Twins’ Grapefruit League struggles: 5 consecutive losses and a history of futility in Florida

Twins struggle to find footing in shutout loss during exhibition game

Despite good signs from pitcher Bailey Ober, who struck out six in 4⅓ innings, the Twins fell to the Braves 4-0, marking their fifth consecutive Grapefruit League loss. The Braves’ hold has been a tough place for the Twins historically, with Minnesota never winning a game at the five-year-old park. They are 0-11-1 with 11 straight losses at CoolToday Park and have been outscored 62-23 in those games.

The regular season will bring a fresh start for the Twins, who will take on the Braves in their final spring training game before heading to Kansas City for the season opener on Thursday. Despite the losses in Florida, the team is optimistic about their chances going forward, with valuable experience gained from the tough competition they faced during spring training. The regular season will provide an opportunity for the Twins to turn things around and make up for lost ground against their division rivals.
