Buxton, homer-happy Twins topple Diamondbacks

(TSX / STATS) -- MINNEAPOLIS -- Byron Buxton hit an inside-the-park home run and was a single away from a cycle. Miguel Sano went deep twice and the Minnesota Twins tied a season high with six home runs in a 10-3 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday.

Sano and Eduardo Escobar each hit two-run shots in the seventh inning. Max Kepler and Brian Dozier added solo homers while Ervin Santana recovered from a tough start to pitch six steady innings.

Santana (13-7) allowed three runs on seven hits and three walks. He struck out six batters as the Twins drew within a half-game of an American League wild card spot with the victory.
