No doubt motivated by watching teammate Jim Thome leg out what must have been one of the most leisurely triples of all time Monday night, Denard Span amazingly hit three triples last night … in the first five innings.
He had a chance to set the post-1900 record with a fourth triple, but drew a walk instead and had to settle for tying Ken Landreaux for the Twins’ single-game record, becoming the first player with three triples in a game since Rafael Furcal in 2002, and leading the AL with seven triples on the season.
