Minnesota Twins shattered this MLB home run record in win over Padres

The Twins are still very much in the MLB playoff picture, and they did their best to keep it that way with a 16-0 rout of the Padres on Tuesday night.

Minnesota still holds on to the final wild-card berth in the American League, and used the long ball to make sure they continue to be in the running for October baseball.

The Twins shattered a MLB record in Tuesday’s blowout win, hitting a home run in seven (!) consecutive innings. At the end of the onslaught, after seven innings of play, it was 16-0.

It started with a home run from Brian Dozier in the first inning, and ended on a three-run bomb by Kennys Vargas in the seventh.

The Twins are the first team in MLB history to hit home runs in the first seven innings of a game, and they’re a legitimate force to be reckoned with in the AL.
