TwinsDaily Minor League Report (8/18): Alex Kirilloff leads Elizabethton to Victory Despite four wins from affiliates on Thursday, the games didn't produce a lot of stand-out performances. A couple key hits here and there, some solid relief work, and that's sort of how things worked out across the system.

TwinsDaily Minor League Report (7/18): Park Goes Yard, and Gonsalvez Dazzles In baseball, and in life, the only constant is change. The Terry Ryan era has come to an end and with Rob Antony in charge, it will be an interesting couple of weeks until the trade deadline.
