The Twins’ Historic Struggles at CoolToday Park Continue: 5 Consecutive Losses and Counting

Twins struggle to find footing in shutout loss during exhibition game

The Twins have been struggling to score runs at CoolToday Park in North Port, Florida, where they have been shut out for 30 consecutive innings this spring. 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 on CoolToday Park 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 Twins have been shut out five times in North Port, in contrast to their 5-5 record against Atlanta in Fort Myers.

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.
