The Minnesota Twins desperately need a victory so Byron Buxton, Josh Donaldson, Nelson Cruz and Jorge Polanco took the game upon themselves at the top of the order today in Cleveland. The Twins top-four hitters said hello to the YouTube “Game of the Week” crew by hitting three home runs and jumping out to a 4-0 lead before (SP) Logan Allen recorded an out!





The Twins would fail to get another runner on base after that 4-run outburst that started the game, though they did hit a couple more balls with authority. There’s a lot of game left and I can promise that fans in Minnesota know better than to count any chickens before they hatch, but we couldn’t have asked for a better start today.
