The Twins bats were ready to rock on Friday with Nelson Cruz, Eddie Rosario and C.J. Cron going back-to-back-to-back with home runs in the first inning against the Orioles. 

For Cruz and Cron, it was their fourth home runs of the season, and for Rosario, it was his 11th dinger, which is tops in the American League this season.

Minnesota has feasted off Baltimore pitching lately, blasting 11 homers in last Saturday's doubleheader, including a franchise record-tying eight in the second game, which was started by the same guy pitching Friday night, Alex Cobb.

The Twins have 40 home runs on the season and are on pace for 282, which would shatter the team record of 225 set in 1963.
