Kennys Vargas hit a pinch-hit, three-run homer in the Twins' 13-0 win over the Athletics.
Vargas only needed one AB to make an impact, belting the three run dinger in the eighth inning when hitting for Joe Mauer. it has been a rough start to 2015, but hopefully one swing will get Vargas going. He had three straight multi-hit games before going 0-4 and then getting the day off. In just a week, Vargas has been able to increase his average from .161 all the way to .222 so it will remain to be seen if he can continue the success. Analysis: Rob Trayah
