Miguel Sano blasts three home runs before Jorge Polanco wins it for Twins in a walkoff


Jeff Wheeler, Star Tribune

Minnesota Twins center fielder Max Kepler (26) chased down designated hitter Jorge Polanco (11) to celebrate after Polanco hit the ninth inning walk off single to give the Twins the win.

Yermin Mercedes' home run off a backup catcher one day earlier was on everybody's mind Tuesday night. At least, until Miguel Sano started hitting home runs off actual pitchers.

The slumping slugger lined a shot into the left-field bleachers, blasted a screamer into the juniper bushes in center field, and, after Tyler Duffey and Rocco Baldelli were ejected for an apparent retaliation against Mercedes for Monday night's "disrespect," launched a long fly ball into the seats in right-center in the eighth, the first three-homer game of his career.

An inning later, Jorge Polanco drove home Andrelton Simmons with a 340-foot single into the right-field corner, and the Twins beat the White Sox for the first time in five meetings, 5-4 in a walk-off victory at Target Field.
