Since the sad passing of Minnesota Twins legend Harmon Killebrew, who wore the #3, the team has found some success and that success has the number 3 involved an awful lot.
The Twins on Thursday scored in the first inning for the third consecutive game.
They hit three home runs in a game for the first time all season.
And they will bring a three-game winning streak into Friday's series opener in Phoenix against the Diamondbacks.
"You really can't make it up,'' Twins President Dave St. Peter said.
