Twins tie MLB single-season home run mark with 267
DETROIT — The Minnesota Twins have tied the single-season major league home run record, matching the mark of 267 set by the New York Yankees last year.
The Twins matched the record when Nelson Cruz went deep in the eighth inning at Detroit on Saturday night. It was Minnesota’s fifth homer of the game. The Twins were still trailing 10-6 after Cruz’s 450-foot drive that reached the bushes beyond the wall in center field at Comerica Park.
