One Last Thing

Garver’s big day inspired a Play Index on the Minnesota Twins history. In all of Minnesota Twins history, there have been 7 3-HR games. The crazy part is that three of those have come in the last 12 months. Max Kepler did the feat on August 1st, 2016. Brian Dozier copied Kepler’s feat September 5th, 2016 in the midst of his monster second half. Last, you likely remember roughly a month ago, on June 13th of this year, when Eddie Rosario completed the feat in that Twins’ 20-7 victory over Seattle.
