MINNEAPOLIS - The New York Yankees used to have the M@M boys: Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris.

The Blue Jays had a set of Killer B's: George Bell and Jesse Barfield.

And the Minnesota Twins had their own set of M@Ms: Joe Mauer and Justin Morneau.

And now in tribute to their place in the standings, the Jays have the L@L Boppers.

Adam Lind and Brett Lawrie homered in the same game for the fifth time this season, this time back-to-back in the first inning, and the last-place Jays were on their way to a 11-2 win over the Twins before 32,882 at Target Field.

Seven hitters into the game had six rockets (Edwin Encarnacion was the only slacker -- he walked) facing Twins right-hander Kevin Correia. By then the Jays were up 5-0 as Lind went deep 410 feet to centre for a three-run homer scoring Munenori Kawasaki and Encarnacion on his 18th homer. Lind hit a 3-2 pitch, the eighth pitch of the at-bat.
