Twins' Mike Pelfrey tosses six one-run innings in no-decision
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Twins pitcher Mike Pelfrey didn't factor into the decision on Wednesday, giving up one earned run on five hits in six innings while striking out five and walking none in his team's 4-3, 13-inning win over the Pirates.

Pelfrey allowed an RBI double in the bottom of the first inning after being staked to a 3-0 lead, and he was able to keep the score at 3-1 by the time he left. However, the Pirates were able to tie the game in the eighth inning, preventing the starter from picking up what would have been his fourth win.

Pelfrey owns a 3.00 ERA and 22:15 K:BB ratio in 45 innings. He's scheduled to face the Red Sox at home on Tuesday.

Twins SP Mike Pelfrey can't get out of the fifth inning on Thursday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Twins starter Mike Pelfrey had a day to forget on Thursday. The veteran right-hander allowed five runs (four earned) on 10 hits in 4 2/3 innings against the Tigers, as the Twins got hit with a 13-1 defeat.

Pelfrey, who walked two and struck out one, served up a solo home run to Nick Castellanos in the fifth inning and really wasn't able to get into any kind of rhythm, after he allowed three runs in the very first inning. He threw 95 pitches on the afternoon, with 59 going for strikes.

This was a step backwards for Pelfrey, who had given up a combined six earned runs over his last five starts. He still sports a very fine 3.23 ERA as he heads into his next start, which will likely be Wednesday in Pittsburgh.

Twins starter Mike Pelfrey improves to 3-0 with strong outing on Friday
by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer

Twins starter Mike Pelfrey (3-0) threw seven strong innings Friday, allowing two runs on six hits to earn the win over the Indians.

Pelfrey ran into trouble in the third inning, giving up a walk, a double and a single to bring two runs home. He felt like his issues might have carried over to the fourth inning, throwing two straight balls to the leadoff batter before stepping off the mound and giving himself a pep talk, MLB.com reports.

"I fell behind 2-0 and I stepped off and kind of yelled at myself," Pelfrey said. "I gave myself a little motivational talk. It was kind of embarrassing. I'm 31 and I felt like I was nibbling for the first three innings, which is pretty embarrassing. But after I got to 2-0 on (Michael) Bourn, I stepped off, and after that I started throwing the ball and we had better results."

Pelfrey rebounded from his previous outing where he lasted just 3 1/3 innings for a no-decision.

"It was another one of those starts we talked about where he started off fairly well and hit a little bit of a hiccup there in the third inning," said manager Paul Molitor, who had said before the game that one of Pelfrey's issues has been losing command early and letting the struggles get to him. "I don't know, it just seems like every start he goes out there he kind of runs into a little bit of a command problem. I think at one point the strike-to-ball ratio was almost 50-50. But he found it again. ... I think he's kind of figuring it out for himself a little bit as he goes, how to go about getting through innings with the stuff that he's using. It was good to see."

Pelfrey's next start is set for Thursday in Detroit.

Twins' Mike Pelfrey pulled in fourth inning vs. White Sox
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Twins pitcher Mike Pelfrey didn't factor into the decision Sunday, giving up two earned runs on five hits and two walks in just 3 1/3 innings while striking out one in his team's 13-3 win over the White Sox.

Pelfrey watched his team stake him to a 7-0 lead in the bottom of the third inning but couldn't find a way to work out of trouble in the fourth. He opened the inning with a walk, a single and then hit three of the next four batters he faced to bring two runs home and earn an early hook.

Pelfrey owns a 2.63 ERA and 16:11 K:BB ratio in 27 1/3 innings. He's slated to face the Indians Friday in Cleveland.

Twins SP Mike Pelfrey remains hot with seven strong innings in win
by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer

Twins starting pitcher Mike Pelfrey (2-0) allowed two runs (one earned) on three hits in seven innings of work Tuesday to record the victory over the Tigers.

Pelfrey struck out seven in the win and has now allowed just two earned runs over his last 19 innings (0.95 ERA).

The right hander missed most of last season with various injuries after signing a two-year contract with the Twins, so he's anxious to have a strong 2015.

"Last year didn't go any way that anybody would like," Pelfrey said. "I wanted to come in and make good on that two-year deal."

Pelfrey's back on the mound Sunday for his next start against the White Sox.
