With a staggering .833 win percentage, the Twins share the league’s best record with the Cubs and the (5-1) Marlins. Their run differential is just off of the Dodgers for the best in the league. None of this is overly surprising and I’m sure you’ve all been seeing that, but it’s still fun to type.
Kenta Maeda goes for the Twins against JT Brubaker, who’s making his first career start after two scoreless appearances as a reliever. Time to welcome him to the big leagues.
