For the third time in their last four games the Minnesota Twins exploded for 11 runs on Friday night. That outburst of offense powered them over the Milwaukee Brewers by a final score of 11-3 in the opening game of a weekend series.
Denard Robinson had four hits and drove in three runs. Justin Morneau and Joe Mauer each drove in three runs as well. Josh Willingham was the only player to go deep for the Twins. His two-run shot in the first inning started the scoring for Minnesota.
Twins left-hander Scott Diamond picked up his third win in three starts this season. Diamond gave up eight hits and three runs in five and a half innings of works, while watching his ERA drop to 1.40.
This win makes it three in a row for the Twins. They try for four at 4:10 p.m. on Saturday.
