Max Kepler hit another home run on Thursday night as the Twins picked up a 10-1 win over the reeling Texas Rangers. Minnesota has won three straight games; five of their last six, and Kepler continues to impress.

In Kepler's last 25 games, he's smacked 7 home runs, slugged .583 and has 27 RBI. Despite highly-talked about prospects such as Miguel Sano and Byron Buxton, it's been Kepler stuffing the stat sheet.

Kurt Suzuki and Kennys Vargas also muscled out home runs in the win. Every single starter for the Twins picked up a hit and Minnesota collected 18 hits as a team. Eduardo Nunez, who's headed to the All Star Game next week, went 3-4 too.

Twins' starter Tyler Duffey struggled with his command out the gate but settled down pitching 6 innings and striking out 9 batters. It was the third time in the last four games that Twins starters have allowed one run or less.
