The league office has spoken. Twins outfielder Josh Willingham has a 15-game hitting streak, not a three-game streak.

Willingham went 0-for-3 with a run scored Sunday during a loss to the Cubs. He reached on Ian Stewart's fielding error in the ninth inning. So everyone left that game believing that his 12-game streak was over.

Not so fast. The league reviewed the play, and changed the ruling to an infield single Wednesday.

Since Willingham went 1-for-5 Tuesday, he entered Wednesday with a 14-game hitting streak, during which he was batting .365 with four home runs, 15 RBI and 11 runs scored. He extended that streak Wednesday with a home run.

Willingham had a 15-game hitting streak earlier in the season. He's one of two players to have two hit streaks of at least 14 games. The other is the Giants' Angel Pagan.
