Twins Tied With Angels in Wild Card Race
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Miguel Sano hit two of the Twins' season high-tying six home runs, including an inside-the-park dash by Byron Buxton, and Minnesota powered past the Arizona Diamondbacks 10-3 Friday night.
Eduardo Escobar, Max Kepler and Brian Dozier also went deep for Minnesota. Buxton finished a single shy of the cycle.
David Peralta had three hits for Arizona, including a home run.
Leading 4-3 in the seventh, Sano hit the first pitch from reliever David Hernandez 452 feet into the second deck in left-center for two runs. Escobar added a two-run shot two batters later for an 8-3 lead.
Sano hit one even further, 474 feet into the third deck, in the eighth for his first multi-homer game this season and third of his career.
Minnesota also hit six home runs May 2 against Oakland.
