Royce Lewis, 3B, Twins: Lewis hit his third grand slam in eight games to lead the Twins to a 20-6 rout of the Guardians on Monday. The 2017 No. 1 overall pick launched a 401-foot shot deep to left field in the second inning off Lucas Giolito to give the Twins a commanding 6-0 lead and break the game open. It was his latest grand slam in a torrid stretch that began with a grand slam off Rangers reliever Chris Stratton on Aug. 27 and included another grand slam off Guardians righthander Xzavion Curry the following day. Lewis became the first rookie in MLB history with three grand slams in a span of eight days or fewer and finished 3-for-4 with a career-high six RBIs.

Lawrence Butler, OF, Athletics: Butler hit two home runs in the Athletics’ 6-5 loss to the Blue Jays. The 23-year-old center fielder got the A’s on the board with a solo shot that traveled 417 feet to dead center in the fifth inning and added a two-run homer in the bottom of the 10th inning that traveled 403 feet to bring the A’s within a run. The 2018 sixth-round pick finished 2-for-4 and now has four home runs in 23 games since being called up.

Gunnar Henderson, 3B, Orioles: Henderson went 2-for-5 with a double, a home run and three RBIs in the Orioles’ 6-3 win over the Angels. Henderson notched the Orioles’ first hit when he led off the second inning with a double and put the game away in the seventh when, with the Orioles nursing a slim 3-2 lead, he turned around a 96 mph fastball from Gerardo Reyes and launched it to right field for a three-run homer. The home run was Henderson’s 23rd of the season and moved him into a tie with Triston Casas for most among AL rookies.
