Twins fans have been hearing about the potential of Byron Buxton and Miguel Sano for a long time and Saturday marked the first time the duo hit home runs in the same MLB game.

Byron Buxton is starting to heat up, too. On Saturday the 22-year-old hit a two-run home run that was estimated at 439 feet.

MLB's Statcast – which is a new tracking technology the league uses to analyze baseball statistics – said the home run actually went 448 feet and left the bat 106 miles-per-hour.

If you include Buxton's recent games in Rochester, he has homered 6 times in his 11 games.

Here's the call of the home run on the Treasure Island Baseball Network.

Shortly after Buxton's home run, Miguel Sano did the same with his blast traveling 438 feet; landing in the upper deck of Target Field.
