MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Miguel Sano is one of the hottest hitters in baseball, and he helped lead the Minnesota Twins to a 4-1 mark on their road trip last week.
Sano was named the American League Player of the Week on Monday. He put up big numbers in the team’s five-game stretch. He had four straight multi-hit games and finished the week 11-for-21 (.524) with three home runs and 11 RBI.
Sano hit a three-run homer in Sunday’s 7-5 win and added two other run-scoring singles. He just missed a grand slam Friday night, which ended up being a two-run double.
