Minnesota Sweeps Twin Series with ChiSox
April 7, 1970 at Chicago – A beautiful spring Opening Day at Comiskey Park was spoiled for South-siders very early on as visiting Minnesota rolled up 6 runs through the first 3 innings and cruised to a 12-6 win. Harmon Killebrew (1), Geroge Mitterwald (1) and Rich Reese banged out 3 hits each. Starting pitcher Jim Perry (1-0) drove in 3 runs of his own.
April 9, 1970 at Chicago – Tony Olivia (1,2) cracked 3 hits with only 1 staying in the ballpark. He drove in 3 as the Twins abused Sox pitching again to the tune of 15 hits and an 8-3 win. Luis Tiant (1-0) enjoyed the batting largesse. Joel Horlen (0-1) didn’t look ready for the new season.
