CHICAGO — The Minnesota Twins broke a major league record for most home runs on the road, getting back-to-back homers in the third inning for 140.
Jake Cave led off the third with a solo shot off Chicago White Sox right-hander Dylan Cease to give AL Central leaders the record. That surpassed the 138 set by the San Francisco Giants in 2001.
Finally a non-single hit.
