The 6,000-home run mark was reached for the first time in any major-league season when Roberto Perez homered off Twins pitcher Alan Busenitz for the Indians in the seventh inning of their 5–2 win against the Twins yesterday afternoon. Major League Baseball’s first season with 1,000 or more home runs was 1922. The subsequent milestones were reached first in 1950 (2,000 home runs), 1962 (3,000), 1987 (4,000) and 1998 (5,000).
