Twins' Byron Buxton: Hits second homer of 2019

Buxton went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in an 8-7 victory against the Angels on Wednesday.

The 25-year-old is on a five-game hitting streak, which sounds modest, but it's raised his average 30 points. Buxton has shown little over-the-fence power so far, but he owns a .500 slugging percentage on the strength of 18 doubles and two triples. He is batting .278 with 16 RBI, 20 runs and eight steals in 126 at-bats.
