Alex Meyer started game one of a doubleheader for the Triple-A affiliate of the Minnesota Twins, while Taylor Rogers followed in game two. Both pitchers were brilliant on Tuesday, combining to not allow a run and strike out 17 in 12 innings. Meyer took the ball in game one against the Syracuse Chiefs. The Twins' top pitching prospect played at an incredible level on Tuesday night. Previously struggling with control problems, Meyer struck out 11 compared to walking three. Meyer's 11 strikeouts tied a career-high. After not allowing a hit through the first three innings, Meyer allowed only two hits through his six shutout innings. Meyer left the game when the score was tied, so he did not factor into the decision. Following Meyer's impressive performance, Rogers followed with another solid outing. Rogers struck out six over six shutout innings. Similar to Meyer, Rogers showed an improvement in control. Rogers walked only one batter and scattered four hits in his first win of the season. The six shutout innings lowered Rogers' ERA to 2.37 through three games in 2015. The Red Wings are on the #BBN train. Congrats to Meyer and Rogers on fantastic starts.    @TreyHuntsmanKSR
