Fargo, ND (WDAY TV)-- The Twins put a lot of faith in Aaron Hicks when they left spring training back in March; but his start this season had fans wondering if there was another option.

Hicks was dropped from the leadoff spot but slowly has started to turn

things around.

Last night was his best yet as a pro; he had his first multi-hit game of the season; and it ended up being two homers and he also robbed Adam Dunn of a home run on a night he won't forget anytime soon.

Aaron Hicks- Two Homers Last Night: "I'm just trying to go up there and have fun; after the first one felt great 2nd one coming, yells, definitely

felt more relaxed after making that catch and whenever I struck it got a good piece of it and went out."

Justin Morneau- Twins First Baseman (FSN): "How many times you see it guy makes a great play and then he did it; feel for him; had a tough start but hopefully that gets him going just like the rest of us."

Morneau is a free agent after the season, his trade value rises with his production, Kevin Correia starts for the Twins tonight against Chicago.
