Byron Buxton struck out looking three times on Friday night and in his other at-bat he bunted into an out, but even that was exciting. 

Buxton hammered a bunt on a one-hopper the bag down the first-base line and was barely beaten to the bag for the out. But he set the record for fastest time from home to first by a right-handed hitter in the Statcast era. 

How fast?

It took him 3.44 seconds, according to Statcast. 

The Twins were leading the Royals 6-5 in the eighth inning at the time of his post.
