In Thursday night's 16-7 victory over the Los Angeles Angels, six Twins players combined for eight round-trippers: Miguel Sano (two), Jonathan Schoop (two), Max Kepler, Eddie Rosario, C.J. Cron and Jorge Polanco.
The New York Post's Ted Holmlund noted Minnesota, prior to this season, had not accomplished the feat since 1963. Now it has done so twice in the span of 34 days. According to ESPN, the Twins join the 2005 Texas Rangers as the only teams in MLB history to have multiple games with eight-plus home runs in a single season.
"It's all just kind of clicked and hopefully there's no stopping," Cron said after the game. "When you are hitting like this it is contagious. If you look at this lineup you are going to see a lot of power. We have the ability to do that and it is nice to show it."
