If momentum can carry from one season to the next, the Twins are in for a treat because Byron Buxton is surging into the offseason.
After hitting his eighth home run of the season on Saturday, Buxton started Sunday's season finale in Chicago with a blazing fast inside-the-park home run. And according to MLB StatCast, Buxton did it in 14 seconds – the fastest time ever recorded on an inside-the-park homer. Someone might have done it faster considering Statcast has only been around for two years, but it's the record nonetheless.

Buxton was hitting in the leadoff spot because Brian Dozier was sitting out the game.
