Brian Dozier surpassed expectations

Keith Law didn't project Dozier to even have average power, but here he is with 42 home runs this season. A change in the 29-year-old's swing and approach has led to his power surge. Law: Players I was wrong about (Insider)

Twins finally put two on the board

Kennys Vargas' sixth-inning two-run homer on Wednesday ended a streak of 106 consecutive frames without scoring multiple runs in an inning for the Twins. It was the longest streak in the majors since the 1942 Phillies had a 109-inning streak of this type, per the Elias Sports Bureau.

Stats & Info

Wednesday's longest home runs

Just because the Braves and Twins have two of the worst records in baseball doesn't mean their guys can't slug. Matt Kemp and Kennys Vargas paced the competition on Wednesday, while Hunter Renfroe's 413-footer was the first to hit the roof of the Western Metal Supply Co. at Petco.

Stats & Info

Eduardo Escobar shows off rare power

Escobar isn't known for hitting home runs, but he sure got a hold of one against the Royals on Tuesday. His fourth-inning blast off Ian Kennedy traveled a career-long 448 feet, per ESPN's Home Run Tracker.

Stats & Info

Tuesday's longest home runs

Miguel Cabrera hit yet another home run that traveled over 440 feet, but he was bested on Tuesday by a player with just six homers in 100 games this season -- Eduardo Escobar. Yoenis Cespedes also reached 440 feet on his blast.
