And what better way to get a win than to win a game by 12 runs? "It was good to come back here and take our frustration out on somebody," Twins center fielder Denard Span said. "We got frustrated out on the road and it was good tonight to come out here and get some hits and some runs." It all started when Brewers starting pitcher Dave Bush gave up seven runs in the first inning. He was pulled from the game with one out in the first. The two guys who really got things going were the 1 and 2 batters, Denard Span and Orlando Hudson. Both of these guys had three Hits each and were responsible for six of the 15 runs the Twins scored. "I think you saw how important it is for us to get things going early," Span said. "This team gets offto a good start and it does start with us, and I think [Hudson] believes the same thing. Every game we approach :- we try to spark the team." Jason Kubel had the most RBI's with four, Justin Morneau with three, Michael Cuddyer, Delmon Young, Trevor Plouffe all had two runs. Speaking ofTrevor Plouffe, this was his Major League debut, and he got the first two outs of the ball game. "I think it was the best thing possible for me," Plouffe said. "I wasn't even in the moment yet. I wasn't paying attention. It absolutely eased my nerves." This scoring and hitting frenzy ended with a total of 17 hits for the Twins. Ironically, the only Twin The next game in the series wasn't won as easily. In the ninth inning, the Brew Crew tied the game up at six and eventually going ahead 7-6. Then after two back-to-back hits to start off the bottom of the ninth, Delmon Young got up and hit a ground rule double scoring one run. That ground rule double probably stopped the winning run from crossing the plate. Milwaukee got out of the ninth without giving up another run to go into extra innings. This game went from another average home game win to an intense nail biter. In each of the last four innings of the game the Twins had the bases loaded but failed to do anything with it until the twelfth inning. Alexi Casilla was walked to start the bottom of the inning, Mauer came up and hit a single for his fourth hit of the game, and Morneau drew a walk to load the bases. Then after one out, Jason Kubel came up and flew out to the right fielder, which allowed Mauer to tag up and score the winning run. "They made some big plays that maybe at the time didn't seem like they were that big but turned out to be huge," Brewers player Casey McGehee said. "It's kind of what they do -- it's Twins baseball. You know they're going to pitch, you know they're going to play defense, they're going to run the bases well and when they throw some hitting in there, they're pretty darn good."

"It's just one of those days where everything was falling for us," Blackburn said. "It can sometimes be hard pitching in games like that, but I think with the way I've been pitching it just just about 40 points above Joe Mauer's of .346. I'm sure there's always some friendly competition between them but Morneau is gonna keep it to a minimum.
