MLB: Minnesota Twins at Detroit Tigers Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

The Minnesota Twins came into tonight’s game five homers back from tying the single-season home run record set by the New York Yankees last year, which totaled at 267. The Bomba Squad had no issues breaking that record tonight in the game against the Detroit Tigers at Comerica Park.

Nelson Cruz was the one to tie the record, hitting a 450-foot homer to center field off of Buck Farmer, his 34th of the season.

Mitch Garver’s second homer of the night broke the record. He took a Joe Jimenez four-seamer to left field, his 26th homer of the season.

Along with Boomstick and GarvSauce, Max Kepler, Jorge Polanco, and C.J. Cron did their part tonight by hitting bombas of their own to help the team break the record in a loss to the Tigers.
