The Minnesota Twins had a fun night on Thursday as they opened up a four-game series against the New York Yankees at Yankee Stadium.
The Twins busted out the lumber early too, and even scored nine runs in the top of the first inning.
That nine-run first ultimately was capped off with back-to-back-to-back home runs.
Those were hit by outfielder Michael A. Taylor, second baseman Edouard Julien, and shortstop Carlos Correa.
The Twins ultimately rolled to an 11-2 blowout victory and forced the Yankees to turn to infielder Isiah Kiner-Falefa to pitch the ninth inning.
On Twitter, MLB provided a video of the successive first-inning shots.

It certainly was a night to remember for the Twins at Yankee Stadium.
It was also one to forget for the Yankees.
Back-to-back home runs will happen from time to time, but it’s rare to see back-to-back-to-back homers.
However, the Twins managed to pull that off on Thursday.
It ultimately led to their ninth win of the year, which extended their lead in the American League Central to two games over the reigning division champion Cleveland Guardians and also helped them maintain the second-best record in the entire American League.
Taylor hit another home run later in the game, which was a two-run shot in the top of the third that barely snuck over the short right field porch at Yankee Stadium.
The Twins certainly flexed their offensive muscle on Thursday, and it led to an important win over a stacked Yankees ballclub.NEXT: Twins Pitching Is On A New Level This Year
