The Minnesota Twins have their first three-game win streak of the season, and while their 11-3 win over the Brewers

on Friday night was aided by four Milwaukee errors, they also were able to leave feeling good about where

their offense is going.

They matched a season high for runs in the victory, and got a combined eight RBI from Joe Mauer, Josh

Willingham and Justin Morneau -- the three hitters who hold the most sway over their fortunes. In their last

three games, the Twins have scored 26 runs.

"The big boys in our lineup all had really good nights, along with Denard Span at the top of the lineup,"

manager Ron Gardenhire said. "A lot of good things happened for us tonight."

The Twins entered the night hitting just .235 with runners in scoring position, but they were able to take

advantage of many opportunities on Friday, going 6-for-15 with runners in scoring position. As much turmoil

as they've endured with their pitching staff, the Twins will probably have to hit their way to many of their

victories this year.

They haven't done that so far this season, with Mauer and Morneau both struggling to this point. But if

they can get the heart of their order hitting consistently, they might have a shot at playing respectable
