Other than that two-run shot, the loudest cheers were for Swanson, the No. 1 overall draft pick of 2015 and a new fan favorite who grew up in nearby Marietta.Swanson received a standing ovation from the small crowd in the second and lined out. He went to the opposite field again in the fourth for a single, struck out in the seventh and singled up the middle in the ninth.Its probably as close to a dream come true as possible, Swanson said. Thats the only way you can really sum it up. Playing for your hometown team and basically going out there and doing what youve worked your whole life for is pretty special.Minnesota led 2-0 in the first on Max Keplers RBI single and Tyler Plouffes RBI double.
