MINNEAPOLIS – On Thursday, Carlos Correa made a grand entrance during Prince Night at Target Field. After hitting a home run to the left-field upper deck, he dashed into the dugout. There, he donned a purple vest, a purple hat, and started jamming out on an inflatable purple guitar shaped like Prince’s Love Symbol to the tune of “Let’s Go Crazy.” The Twins put on a show, not only with their new home run celebration but also with a stellar performance on the field.

Correa, along with Byron Buxton and Royce Lewis, combined for eight hits, five RBIs, and four runs, leading the Twins to a 6-2 victory over the A’s. This win marked their fourth victory in the last five games. The quirky celebration was a hit among the players and fans alike and is set to become a regular feature.

The man behind the celebration, Pablo López, had the vest custom-made and arranged for the inflatable guitar, making sure everything was in place for Prince Night. The teammates were taken by surprise when López unveiled the outfit in the dugout. Correa, who had a stellar game with three hits and three RBIs, was thrilled to be the first to showcase the celebration.

Correa’s recent performance has been outstanding, with nine hits in his last 11 plate appearances. Buxton also showed his form with a three-hit game, going 9-for-23 in the past week. Lewis continued his impressive run with two more hits. The trio’s success has injected new energy into the Twins lineup, giving them hope for the rest of the season.

Buxton expressed his excitement about the team’s performance, highlighting the potential they have if they can maintain this level of play. López, the mastermind behind the celebration, was pleased with how everything came together on Prince Night. The Twins are looking forward to more success with their newfound momentum and camaraderie on and off the field.
