Box Score of the week

When the Minnesota Twins won the A.L. Western Division in 1970, they would not win another division title for 17 years.

With that in mind, let's check out a game from the 1970 season when the Twins hosted the Oakland Athletics.


In this game, Twins slugger Harmon Killebrew hit his 35th home run of the season. It would be the last time a Twins hitter would hit 35 or more HRs until this 2012. Josh Willigham became only the third Twin in franchise history to reach that single season milestone, as he hit his 35th in Cleveland last week.
