TORONTO -- The Blue Jays had plenty of pop at the top on Tuesday in their win over the Twins. Nos. 1 and 2 hitters Troy Tulowitzki and Josh Donaldson each launched second-deck solo shots as Toronto downed Minnesota, 3-1, at Rogers Centre in front of 26,504.
The power-hitting Blue Jays matched up well against right-hander Phil Hughes, who has allowed a Major League-high 27 homers this season. Donaldson went to work on that advantage early, cracking a home run in the first inning to spot the Blue Jays an early lead. Tulowitzki followed with a moon shot in the third to make it 2-0. His home run was projected to travel 450 feet and it left his bat at 111 mph, according to Statcast™.
