Eddie Rosario's fantastic season got even better on Thursday afternoon as he smashed a double in his first at-bat and then hit a towering, three-run homer down the right-field line to give the Twins a 7-0 lead in the fourth inning. 

Rosario then threw a strike in the air from left field to nab a running at the plate in the top of the fifth inning. 

On the season, Rosario is batting .312 with 14 homers and 43 RBI. Escobar is hitting .286 with 12 homers and 38 RBI.
