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.

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.
