Bomba parade continues as Twins sweep Cleveland
Four home runs paved the path to victory as the Twins lead the American League
September 14, 2020
Even empty, Target Field has been such a comfortable home for the Twins this year, they're probably going to get to play at least a couple more games here.
The Twins completed a weekend sweep of Cleveland on Sunday, bashing four more home runs to rally for a 7-5 victory that all but eliminates last year's chief nemesis from contending for their AL Central championship. And by dropping Cleveland 3 1/2 games behind them with just a dozen games remaining, the Twins have all but clinched one of the four no-road-games tickets to the first round of the playoffs.
"Any team would like to play the first round at home if they could. The way we've played at home, it point even more so in that direction," Twins manager Rocco Baldelli said after his team improved to an MLB-best 21-5 in its home ballpark. "Our guys love playing here. They're very comfortable here. If we can make that happen, that would be great."
