Joe Mauer and Eduardo Escobar batted Tuesday night with their mugshots on the videoboard on top of Wild jerseys.
When a Twins player hit a home run, a horn went off similar to the one used at Xcel Energy Center when the Wild score.
While the Twins recognized the State of Hockey, they turned Target Field into a launching pad while smashing San Diego 16-0.
As actual Wild players Mikael Granlund, Matt Dumba and Jonas Brodin looked on from a suite, the Twins really took it to the Padres.
Castro added his second homer, a solo shot in the fifth, and Eduardo Escobar tried to hit one to First Avenue in the sixth, settling for a 427-foot bomb.
