Milwaukee Brewers 4

Minnesota Twins 7

The Minnesota Twins beat the Milwaukee Brewers 7-4 Monday night in a rain-shortened game at Target Field.

1. Four straight

Don't look now, but the 0-9 start to open the season is nearly forgotten about. After sweeping the Angels and Monday night's victory the Twins have won four straight.

2. Right-handed power comes through

It's been a rough start to the year for Minnesota's right-handed power hitters, but things might be starting to look up. On the same day the Twins found out that Trevor Plouffe was likely headed for the disabled list a couple of the other right-handed power hitters stood up.

Miguel Sano blasted his first home run of the season, tying the game at one.

Then it was Byung Ho Park, who delivered an impressive blast to right field.

3. Rain makes history at Target Field

After a rain delay that lasted just over two hours, before umpires called it off. It was the first rain-shortened game in Target Field history.
