 Minnesota Twins right-hander Kenta Maeda turned in a solid effort in a 6-5 loss to the Brewers on Opening Day. Maeda allowed two runs (one earned) over 4 1/3 innings of work while striking out five and walking two. He did not factor into the decision.

Javier Baez went 1-for-3 versus Milwaukee Monday. His lone hit was also his first homer of the season which was a solo blast. Baez got hit right above his knee but stayed in the game.

  Javier Baez went 0-for-4 versus the Pirates Sunday. He did drive in the eventual winning run when the Pirates committed an error. Baez seems to be involved in more than his share of weird plays so after awhile, you might be tempted to refer to it as the Baez Effect. My father and I do.

  Javier Baez went 2-for-4 with a run scored and one driven in. He also stole two bases on the same trip around the bases.
