With his solo home run in the bottom of the fifth tonight against the White Sox, Joe Mauer reached a significant milestone.â†µ
He’s finally hit more home runs in Minnesota’s new baseball palace than Nick Punto.â†µ
Mauer had seven home runs coming into tonight’s contest. . .they had all been hit on the road. Tonight was his first round-tripper in front of the home fans this season.â†µ
Punto, for the record, has still yet to hit a home run at Target Field. Shocking, I know.
