Video: Twins bust out in laughter after pranking Eddie Guardado


After blasting the Chicago White Sox 13-2 at Target Field on Monday night, the Minnesota Twins had some fun in the clubhouse.

Twins closer Glen Perkins used his phone to record a hilarious prank on former Twins closer – now bullpen coach – Eddie Guardado.

Guardado walked up to his locker but little did he know that relief pitcher Brian Duensing was hiding inside the locker with an airhorn.

The result is fantastic.

Perkins' tweet references hitting coach Tom Brunansky dancing. It's become customary for the Twins to dance in the locker room after every home victory. Fox Sports North notes that the dance parties include a fog machine and laser lights.

At 38-32, the Twins are just two wins from reaching 40 wins faster than any season since 2010. It's taken them at least 87 games to reach 40 wins in each of the last four seasons, so there's plenty of reason to celebrate so far this summer.
