Twins generate power from unlikely spots –
Brian Dozier, Oswaldo Arcia, Clete Thomas, and Eduardo Escobar provided unlikely power in the Twins’ 8-4 win over the White Sox at Target Field. It was the first time in team history that Minnesota players homered from the first, seventh, eighth, and ninth slots in the batting order in the same game.
There was one other such game this season. On April 30, the Indians homered from the 1, 7, 8, and 9 slots (Michael Brantley, Lonnie Chisenhall, Ryan Raburn, and Drew Stubbs). But prior to that, it hadn’t happened in the majors since 2005.
