On Wednesday night, as the Twins took on the Rangers, Miguel Sano attempted to make it rain in Minnesota with two massive home run blasts -- because he saw how much fun fellow American League sluggers Miguel Cabrera and Josh Donaldson have been having in the bringer-of-rain business.

One inning later, with the skies still not turning gray and releasing a torrent of water, Sano tried again. Though this one went only 403.74 feet, the ball actually went higher, letting it scrape the heavens themselves before landing in the third deck.
