Congratulations to Jim Thome for hitting his 600th career home run off of Daniel Schlereth in the 7th inning of last night's game in Detroit. It was his second of the night, as he had already homered the inning before off of Rick Porcello. He is the eighth player ever to hit 600 home runs, joining Barry Bonds, Hank Aaron, Babe Ruth, Willie Mays, Alex Rodriguez, Ken Griffey Jr., and Sammy Sosa.
Thome's milestone home run was a three-run blast that stretched the Twins' lead to 9-5. They eventually won the game 9-6 on the back of Thome's 5 RBIs.
