The fans were few but it made all the difference to have them cheer on the Minnesota Twins in their season home opener at Target Field on Thursday. A 10-2 win over the Seattle Mariners saw several contributors.

Starting pitcher Jose Berrios (2-0), who worked 5 & 2/3 innings did extra duty defensively by picking off two base runners. A feat that has only happened 12 times for a pitcher in franchise history.

And how about Byron Buxton? Twins.com writes that Buxton doubled, homered, and singled which makes him the first player in Twins history with extra-base hits in each of his first six games of a season. His 5th inning homerun found the second level of the left-field stands.

As part of the Bomba Squad, Mitch Garver goes deep to centerfield for a 3-run round-tripper. And the small crowd in attendance was deafening.

And then in the bottom of the 7th inning, Louis Arraez with a man on second sends a towering blast to the right-center field.

Twins and Mariners have the day off today as the series will resume Saturday with Michael Pineda dueling with Yusei Kikuchi. The first pitch will be 12:30 PM on Information 1000 KSOO.
