Valencia, who played for the Twins from 2010-2012, actually hit 5 homers over the weekend. He's red-hot, riding a 10-game hitting streak, according to ESPN.

Per the Twins website, the last Twins player to hit three homers in a game was Justin Morneau in 2007. Bob Allison, Harmon Killebrew and Tony Oliva are the only others to do it.
