After a long 12-inning game, the Minnesota Twins nudged out the Chicago White Sox in a 9-8 win at Target Field.
In the third inning, the Twins were 5-0, after a record-breaking homer from Miguel Sano. This home run is Sano’s 30th of the season, making him the fifth player on the Twins to hit at least 30 in a season.
This is a new record, as no team in MLB history before has had five players hit 30 home runs or more in a single season. (The other players on the Twins with 30 home runs are Max Kepler, Eddie Rosario, Nelson Cruz, and Mitch Garver.)
Despite this victory, the White Sox still managed to tie things up, and forced the game passed the 9th inning. But in the end, and after both teams kept scoring runs well into the extra innings, the Twins edged out one more run to beat out Chicago.
