CHICAGO – The Minnesota Twins broke a major league record for most home runs on the road, getting back-to-back homers in the third inning and one in the seventh for 141.
Jake Cave led off the third with a solo shot off Chicago White Sox right-hander Dylan Cease to give AL Central leaders the record. That surpassed the 138 set by the San Francisco Giants in 2001. C.J. Cron followed with a drive to center.
Cave added a shot in the seventh for his second career multi-homer game, increasing the Twins’ overall total to 261. The record for homers in a season, 267, was set last year by the New York Yankees.
