Twins slugger Nelson Cruz hit his 400th career home run, becoming the 57th player in major league history to reach the mark.
Cruz connected in the fourth inning Sunday for his 40th homer of the season. He became the third player in Twins history to hit 40 home runs in a season, joining Harmon Killebrew and Brian Dozier.
\"It\'s nice to do it in front of the fans. I think they deserve it,\'\' Cruz said. \"They\'ve been such a big influence for us as a team. They come up every day with that energy.\'\'
