Why the Minnesota Twins’ Phil Hughes got hit in the sixth inning

Twins starting pitcher Phil Hughes pitched five innings, gave up three hits and no runs. In the sixth inning, Hughes gave up four hits — three of them doubles — and three runs. So what happened? How could a pitcher be so dominant for five innings, then get whacked all over the yard in the sixth? Probably because it was the third time through the order.
