Max Kepler set

Max Kepler set a Minnesota Twins rookie record Saturday by driving in seven runsto help the Twins topple the Texas Rangers, 17-5.The young outfielder hit two home runs in the game both three-run shots. The Twins did all of their damage early, scoring all 17 runs in the first five innings. The Rangers tried to fight back, but were already in too deep.Twins designated hitter Eduardo Nunez continued his breakout campaign by collecting four hits, three runs scored and two RBIs. He is now batting .322 on the season.Even with the win, Minnesota still sits 23 games behind the Cleveland Indians in the American League Central. But there is hope for the future with young playerslike Kepler, Miguel Sano and Byron Buxton all improving.Sano hit a home run Saturday. He also had three RBIs and scored two runs. Buxton went 2 for 5 to finally rise above .200.Player of the dayWhat the Los Angeles Angels did to the Boston Red Sox on Saturday just wasn’t natural. First baseman C.J. Cron and catcher Carlos Perez Larry Andersen Jersey were especially brutal to the Boston fans still celebrating from the news Al Horford chose the Celtics. Cron went 6 for 6 with two home runs, five RBIs and five runs scored. Perez was almost as prodigious. He went 5 for 6 with a home run, two runs scored and six RBIs. When it was all added up, the Angels beat the Red Sox 21-2 and Mike Trout didn’t even drive in a single run. The 19-run differential was Boston’s third-worst lo s in the history of Fenway Park.HighlightKendrys Morales is really starting to heat up since beginning his experiment in the outfield:Kendrys Morales is having a nice little Saturday.HR 1: 2: MLB (@MLB) July 3, 2016Three things to knowRajai Davis became thefirst ClevelandIndians player to hit for the cycle since Travis Hafner in2003.Davis finished the game 4 for 5 with two runs scored, a home run, two RBIs and a stolen base. However, the Indians had their 14-game win streak snapped by a 9-6 lo s against the Toronto Blue Jays. Miami Marlins ace Jose Fernandezallowed a career-high nine runs (six earned) in a 9-1 lo s to the Atlanta Braves. He also gave up twohome runs in a game for just the secondtime in his career. The Braves rank last in MLB in home runs this season. Chicago White Sox ace Chris Sale earned his MLB-leading 14th win with a 7-6 victory over the Houston Astros. He didn’t have his best stuff he allowed five runs (four earned) while striking out nine batters in seven innings but the talented lefty did enough to get the job done.
