In Thursday afternoon’s 11-3 rout of the Braves, the Brewers became the 16th team in major league history to score in every inning of a game, MLB.com’s Curt Hogg and Mark Bowman report. To put that in perspective, there have been 23 official perfect games in baseball history, including 21 in the modern era.

Here’s how all the scoring occurred:

Before the Brewers on Thursday, the last team to score in every inning of a game was the Tigers on August 2, 2014 against the Rockies. The only other team to do it this millennium was the Yankees on April 29, 2006 against the Blue Jays.

Twins DH Nelson Cruz hit his 400th career home run, a solo home run in the fourth inning of Sunday’s game against the Royals. The blast padded the Twins’ lead to 8-6, and was also No. 40 on the season for Cruz.

Cruz, 39, is the 57th member of the 400-homer club. He was previously tied with Andres Galarraga and Al Kaline at 399. Cruz has hit 163 of his homers with the Mariners, 157 with the Rangers, and 40 each with the Orioles and Twins.

Cruz entered Sunday batting .300/.383/.624 with 104 RBI in 500 plate appearances. Pretty good production for the Twins from a slugger on a one-year, $14.3 million contract. The Twins hold a $12 million club option for 2020 as well.
