The Minnesota Twins entered the MLB's history books following Thursday's 10-5 win over the Chicago White Sox.
The Twins – who completed a three-game sweep of the White Sox – have 141 home runs away from their home at Target Field in 2019.
Minnesota jumped out in front early with four runs in the first inning. They tacked on two more in both the second and the third to take command and easily cruised to the win from there.
White Sox starter Dylan Cease surrendered eight runs and 10 hits while lasting just two innings on the mound.
"It almost looked like we shortened up at times," Twins manager Rocco Baldelli said. "We almost just did what we had to do to put the ball in play and just put a good swing on the ball instead of the swings that we've seen some of our guys put on throughout the year. That kind of approach worked out."
Minnesota – who were inspired by Jake Cave's two homers – lead the American League Central with an 82-51 record, while the White Sox dropped to 60-73.

Todd Frazier went 0 for four with a strikeout in the New York Mets' 4-1 loss to the Chicago Cubs.
