A’s pound Twins 18-3
Each of the nine players in the A’s starting lineup had at least one RBI and one run scored in the team’s 18-3 pounding of the Twins on Wednesday. That marked only the third time in the A’s franchise history that all nine starters did that in a game. The other two times that happened were on August 16, 1928 (vs. Detroit), when the franchise was located in Philadelphia, and on June 18, 2000 (at Kansas City).
The 18 runs that Oakland put on the board are the second most scored by a team at Target Field since the Twins began playing their home games there in 2010, behind the 19 run outburst Minnesota had against the Orioles on July 16, 2012.
