Minnesota Twins’ second baseman Jonathan Schoop hit the team’s 300th home run of the season, a two-run home run in the top of the seventh inning in their 10-4 win over the Detroit Tigers Thursday afternoon at Comerica Park in Detroit, Mich. 

This marks the first time in Major League Baseball history that a team has hit 300 home runs in a single season.

"It's not only me, so I cannot take the credit for myself,” Schoop said, according to “I cannot hit 300 home runs by myself. It's my teammates. I'm lucky enough that I hit the 300th home run, but it's all teamwork. We're all in history because we all did it together. I'm happy. I'm happy that I did it, but it's teamwork.”

Twins catcher Willians Astudillo added another home run in the eighth inning to give the Twins 301 on the season. 

The Twins may soon have company, as the New York Yankees enter play Friday with 299 home runs on the season. The Yankees have three games remaining against the Texas Rangers. 

The 2018 Yankees held the previous single season team home run record with 267, prior to the 2019 Twins breaking the mark on Aug. 31.
