MINNEAPOLIS -- With an RBI double by Justin Morneau and an RBI groundout by Michael Cuddyer, the Twins became the first team since the 1971 Yankees to score at least two runs in the first inning of six consecutive games.

Until today, this feat had never been accomplished in franchise history.

The Twins lead the major leagues with 28 first inning runs. The next closest team heading into today's games is the Milwaukee Brewers with 22.
