Byron Buxton's first career hit was a stand-up triple. Of course.
I'd bet a lot of money on Buxton finishing his career with more than one inside-the-park homer. In the meantime, here are the Twins' all-time leaders in triples:
Rod Carew 90 Cristian Guzman 61 Kirby Puckett 57 Zoilo Versalles 56 Chuck Knoblauch 51
