Having a blast: Twins become 1st to hit 300 HRs

The Minnesota Twins on Thursday became the first team in major league history to hit 300 home runs in a season.

And they weren't done there.

No. 300 was a two-run shot by Jonathan Schoop off Detroit Tigers pitcher Jose Cisnero in the seventh inning of the Twins' 10-4 victory. It was Schoop's 23rd homer of the season.

One inning later, catcher Willians Astudillo hit a solo shot to left field off Zac Reininger for No. 301.

"It is great that I got to hit the 300th homer, but this record is about more than me," Schoop said. "We've got a lot of guys with a ton of homers, but so many other guys have hit big ones when we needed it."

With the Twins recovering from Wednesday night's celebration of their first division title since 2010, Schoop was the only player in Thursday's lineup with more than 12 homers this season.

Including the Twins, 13 teams have set franchise records for home runs this season: Atlanta, Boston, Cincinnati, the Chicago Cubs, Houston, the Los Angeles Dodgers, Milwaukee, the New York Mets, the New York Yankees, Oakland, San Diego and Washington.

Arizona and Cleveland are also both on pace to set team marks before the season ends.

The record for home runs in a season by a team had been 267, set last year by the Yankees, who have 299 this season entering Friday's game.

The Twins need just one more victory to become the fourth major league team to reach 100 wins this season.
