Kenta Maeda pitches well for four innings. The Wind Surge loses a pitchers' duel. Spencer Steer has a big day and Kernels pitchers strike out 21 Snappers. Keoni Cavaco is heating up.

As Twins affiliates don't seem to play on Mondays, Tuesday morning seems like a good time to look at how the teams are doing in the standings and at a few team leaders. In rate categories, I don't have a specific number of at-bats or innings I'm looking for--it's more based on a feel of what's enough to be relevant.
