Doumit swinging heavy lumber since All-Star break
CLEVELAND -- Ryan Doumit has been one of the Twins' hottest hitters since the All-Star break, batting at a .322 clip over his past 23 games.

Doumit has also been supplying plenty of power over that stretch, with five homers and eight doubles.

"He's made some adjustments in his stance more than anything," Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said. "He's a little more straight up, and [he's] seeing the ball a little bit better. He's been using the whole field. I think he feels like he has better balance driving the ball and using his legs better."

Doumit has quietly put together a solid year, as he entered Wednesday's series final vs. Cleveland hitting .295 with a .344 on-base percentage and .488 slugging percentage in 91 games.

Doumit also has 12 homers -- three off his career high set in 2008 with the Pirates -- and is tied for third on the Twins with 55 RBIs.
