Twins end homestand on a high note, with convincing victory over Milwaukee
August 21, 2020
For Ryan Jeffers' first major-league at-bat, there was no easing into it.
The 23-year-old approached home base with Ildemaro Vargas looming at third, his speed carrying him to scoring position after a line drive to centerfield. And now the newbie could drive in the Twins' breakthrough run against the Milwaukee Brewers at the bottom of the third inning Thursday.
Ryan Jeffers could have understandably failed to rise to the big occasion. Instead he exceeded expectations, smacking first hit and RBI single on an groundball to left field and helping the Twins to a 7-1 victory at Target Field.
