Andrew Albers

Andrew Albers shut out the Indians last night 3-0 after he threw 8 1/3 scoreless innings last Tuesday in his big-league debut against the Royals. Albers is the first pitcher not to allow a run in either of his first two games in the major leagues, while pitching at least eight innings in each game, since Baltimore’s Tom Phoebus began his career with consecutive shutouts in September 1966.

Brian Dozier‘s solo home run and Trevor Plouffe‘s two-run shot accounted for the Twins’ scoring in Monday night’s 3-0 win over the Indians. Minnesota’s last 22 runs have been scored on home runs, the longest such streak by a major-league team since the Phillies scored 22 straight runs with homers back in 2002.
