Vladimir Guerrero Jr. is the MLB home run leader once again.

The Toronto Blue Jays' slugger took a Michael Pineda offering deep and way gone to left field for his 46th homer of the season, breaking his tie with Salvador Perez at the top of baseball's leaders list. Shohei Ohtani sits in third place with 44.

Guerrero came into the matchup game slashing .317/.406/.611 with 103 RBI. Guerrero sits just four home runs from the 50-mark with 15 games to go after Friday.

The blast pulled the Blue Jays to within three runs but that was as close as they would get as the Twins went on to win 7-3. Guerrero finished 1-for-3 with a walk in the loss.

The Jays will continue their series with the Twins throughout the weekend at Rogers Centre.
