Kenta Maeda, Twins

Eight strikeouts and 5⅓ shutout innings give the Twins hope that their Opening Day starter has righted himself.

By the numbers

6 Extra-base hits by Alex Kirilloff over the past four games, including two doubles on Monday.

3 Steals in the past five games by Byron Buxton, who has yet to be caught this season.

88.0 Buxton's career stolen-base success rate, best in MLB history among players with at least 66 steals, as he has.
