ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) C.J. Cron believed in spring training that the Minnesota Twins were going to have a good offense this season. Their hitting hasn't just been good, it has been powerful.

The Twins tied a franchise record with eight home runs and beat the Los Angeles Angels 16-7 on Thursday to complete a three-game sweep. The Twins- who also went deep eight times earlier this season at Baltimore - joined the 2005 Texas Rangers as the only teams in MLB history to have multiple games in a season with eight or more home runs.

"It's all just kind of clicked and hopefully there's no stopping," said Cron, who had five hits, including a home run against his former team. "When you are hitting like this it is contagious. If you look at this lineup you are going to see a lot of power. We have the ability to do that and it is nice to show it."
