The Minnesota Twins' power surge has officially set a record.

Jorge Polanco became the latest Twin to reach the 20-homer mark when he belted a two-run shot off the Tigers' Matthew Boyd in the fifth inning on Saturday.

His blast gave Minnesota eight players with at least 20 home runs this season, establishing a new major-league record.

Max Kepler 36
Nelson Cruz 34
Eddie Rosario 27
Miguel Sano 26
Mitch Garver 26
C.J. Cron 24
Jonathan Schoop 21
Jorge Polanco 20

Seven teams shared the previous record, with the Los Angeles Dodgers most recently fielding seven batters with 20-plus long balls in 2018.

Polanco's blast was one of six Twins homers Saturday, giving them an MLB single-season record 268 homers this year.
