    Today, the Twins beat the Red Sox 4-3 with a solo homer from Ryan Jeffers. Jose Miranda, who isn't playing in the field due to right shoulder soreness, doubled, scored a run and drove one in. Kepler doubled and scored a run. Max is hitting .353 this spring. Hopefully, this is a sign of a better season for him offensively. He has struggled recently and the Twins can use his bat in the lineup.
    Tyler Mahle didn't have his best stuff today, and gave up 3 runs (2 earned) on 7 hits and a walk in 2.1 innings. He struck out 4. Cole Sands gave up no runs on 3 hits and a walk while striking out 4 in 2.1 innings. Trevor Megill struck out 2 of the 4 hitters he faced in 1.1 innings. Blayne Enlow struck out 1 in a 13 pitch clean inning to pick up the save.
    Defensively, the Twins made another error.

    Today, the Twins played a pair of games, tying one and losing the other.
    They tied the Pirates 2-2 with Kepler and Larnach driving in runs. Kepler is batting .409 this spring. Is this a harbinger of things to come or just because he is taking advantage of lower quality pitching? Michael A. Taylor was 2/3 with a run scored.
    Bailey Ober gave up a walk and struck out 1 in 3 scoreless innings. Headrick allowed a run on 3 hits and a walk while striking out 4 in his 3 innings.
    Tampa beat the Twins 7-4 with Chance Sisco going 2/3 with a 2-run homer and a double.
    Randy Dobnak gave up an unearned run on a hit and 3 walks in 3 innings.

    On a more positive note, Buxton is going to begin playing games tomorrow.

    The Twins dropped a 5-3 decision to the Orioles today with 2 solo homers from Kyle Farmer and 1 from Michael A. Taylor. Nick Gordon doubled for the team.
    Tyler Mahle allowed 4 runs on 6 hits and 2 walks while striking out 3 in 3.2 innings to take the loss.
    Gallo played left and had an assist on Daz Cameron trying to go to 3rd. I guess he hasn't heard that Gallo can throw a little bit.
    The Twins starting outfield, Gallo in left, Buxton in center and Kepler in right can all play defense and throw the ball well.

    It appears that Brooks Lee is open to moving from short to 3rd. Could be a good move for the team.

    Today, the Twins put on a hitting clinic against the Red Sox, winning the game 11-0. Larnach was 4/4 with a homer, 2 runs scored and 2 driven in. Miranda was 1/4 with a 2-run homer. Kyle Farmer was 1/3 with a homer, 2 runs scored and 2 driven in. Solano was 3/4 with a run scored and an RBI. Michael A. Taylor was 2/4 with 3 driven in. Joe Ryan allowed no runs on 2 hits, a walk and 5 Ks in 5 innings to pick up the win. Pagan gave up 2 hits and a walk in 2 innings with a strikeout. Cole Sands gave up 2 hits and a walk with 2 Ks in 2 innings.
    On the injury front, Polanco and Kirilloff will start the season on the IL and Buxton will likely DH much of the time for the first few weeks.
