Streaking Twins Win Another One
Rob Crocker left his imprint on the 7-5 Minnesota win against the Houston Astros. Crocker, who was drafted in the 2nd round of the 2020 draft, was 3-4 with a home run and 2 singles. He scored 2 times and drove in 2. The win was Chris Byrd's in relief. His record improves to 2-0. José Bautista took the loss for Houston. The Astros fall to 4-8 and continue their uneasy start to the 2026 season.

Brock Maxwell helped out the Minnesota cause in the bottom of the sixth inning with a run-scoring double. For the game, the designated hitter was 2 for 4 with a double.

"I felt good up there," said Maxwell. "I saw the ball well."
