"It feels good. It feels like every time I'm at bat there's somebody in scoring position," Doumit said. "It's a testament to the guys who are hitting in front of me."
Manager Ron Gardenhire used Doumit as his designated hitter on Wednesday. Doumit was in the No. 5 slot behind Eduardo Escobar, Joe Mauer, Josh Willingham and Justin Morneau.
"I'm just getting back to basics," Doumit said. "After a slow start, I watched some video and just tried to get back and simplify things. I'm in a little bit of a groove right now."
Gardenhire has enjoyed watching Doumit's recent RBI spree, which included four homers, two doubles and a triple over a seven-game span.
"He has been getting a lot of big base hits," Gardenhire said. "I feel pretty good about our offense and Doumit especially. We're putting ourselves in a lot of situations to get hits and knock in runs."
