Oakland Athletics: 5 Things Learned During Series vs. Minnesota Twins
Ann Heisenfelt

The Oakland Athletics went on the road for their first away series this season against the Minnesota Twins. It was an interesting series for many reasons, not the least of which was the fact the three-game set spanned four days—on purpose.

Then again, Oakland has had its fair share of unexpected scheduling conflicts over the first two weeks, so a planned day off after the Twins’ season opener shouldn’t be that big of an oddity.

Not to mention that all three games were during the day, an interesting quirk for fans following out west who were just getting to the office pouring their first cups of Joe.

The abnormal schedule, however, did not make the Athletics groggy. In fact, in general, the A’s were quite alert during this series, as Oakland’s perked-up offense scored 21 runs. The A’s ended their four-day stay in Minneapolis with a three-game sweep of the Twins and a place atop the American League West standings.

Here’s what we learned from the Oakland Athletics’ sweep of the Minnesota Twins.
