Alex Rodriguez, N.Y.
Two days before his 40th birthday, the three-time MVP blasted three home runs
BY THE NUMBERS
40,660 Saturday’s attendance, biggest Target Field crowd since Aug. 21, 2011
19 Consecutive scoreless innings pitched by Twins’ starters, a streak broken by Rodriguez’s fourth-inning homer
208 Home runs as a Twin by Torii Hunter, one more than Kirby Puckett for sixth in franchise history
2 home runs given up by closer Glen Perkins, and the second time he’s blown a save in a week
The Twins never have won a series against the Yankees at Target Field, but Kyle Gibson will try to change that Sunday.
