Lou and Silvana Colabello traveled from Milford, Mass., — an hour outside of Boston — to watch their son Chris play on Wednesday. It just happened to be Silvana’s birthday.

“Seems like every time I play on her birthday something crazy happens,” Chris Colabello said. “All the way back to high school and college.”

Know what’s crazy? That Colabello, who seemed to be overmatched last season as an Independent League veteran turned major league rookie, has torn up the league during the first month of the season. And he’s about to take down a Twins legend in the record books.

Colabello opened and closed the Twins’ scoring on Wednesday, cranking a two-run home run in the second then a two-run single in the 12th in their 6-4 victory over the Rays at Tropicana Field. With four RBI on Wednesday, Colabello has 26 on the season — tying him with Kirby Puckett for the club record for RBI in the first month of the season (including March).

“That’s a pretty cool name to be associated with,” Colabello said. “I’m not going to forget that one.”

And it looks like that record is going down: The Twins have six more games left this month.
