After their home run binge Sunday at Yankee Stadium, the Twins are on pace to hit 179 homers this season. That would be the most since they moved into Target Field and their most in any season since 2004, when they hit 191.
That note you just read on the Twins' home run pace? It will be put to the test starting Tuesday (7 p.m., FSN) against the White Sox, who as a pitching staff have given up the fewest home runs (75) in the American League.
