Eddie Rosario joined select company in Twins history by joining the three homers in a game club.

Rosario ripped a 2-run homer in the second inning, another 2-run homer in the third and a solo shot in the eighth to join Bob Allison, Harmon Killebrew, Tony Oliva, Justin Morneau, Brian Dozier and Max Kepler as the only players in Twins history with a three-homer game.

Rosario finished the night 4-for-5 with 3 homers and 5 RBI.

Rosario's bombs were part of an insane offensive explosion by the Twins as they set a franchise record with 28 hits in a 20-7 blowout win over the Mariners.

Look at how much mashing the starting nine did.

  1. Brian Dozier: 2-for-5, HR, 2B, 2 RBI
  2. Joe Mauer: 1-for-5
  3. Robbie Grossman: 2-for-6
  4. Max Kepler: 3-for-5, HR, 2 RBI
  5. Kennys Vargas: 4-for-6, 2 RBI, 4 runs
  6. Eduardo Escobar: 5-for-6, 2 RBI
  7. Jason Castro: 4-for-5, 4 RBI
  8. Jorge Polanco: 2-for-5, 2 RBI
  9. Eddie Rosario: 4-for-5, 3 HR, 5 RBI

And yes, you're seeing that lineup correctly. Miguel Sano had the night off.
