With the American League Central title in hand and three games remaining in which the Twins hope to rest most of their starters before postseason play, what exactly remains to play for in the closing days of the 2019 season?
How about another home run milestone?
Even in a sleepy post-clincher day game at Comerica Park in which the Twins emptied their bench to scrape together a starting lineup, the Bomba Squad found another record-breaking jolt. Jonathan Schoop crushed a two-run homer to left field in the seventh inning to make the Twins the first team in Major League history to hit 300 in a season as they piled on for a 10-4 win and a sweep of the Tigers on Thursday.
Minutes later, Willians Astudillo added a solo shot over the bullpens in left field for No. 301, capping his first career four-hit game.
