Trevor Plouffe emerging as RBI threat for Twins
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Twins third baseman Trevor Plouffe is making good on his preseason claim that he would focus on driving in more runs this season.

Plouffe has 13 RBI in 20 games, which puts him on a 105-RBI pace for the year. He has remained steady throughout and has embarked on a hot streak in which he has six hits in 17 at-bats with five runs scored over the last four games.

The 27-year-old Plouffe has also grown more patient at the plate. He is on pace to exceed 100 walks - quite remarkable considering his career high is 37.

Mike Pelfrey lasts five innings in no-decision vs. Rays
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Twins pitcher Mike Pelfrey gave up three runs (two earned) on six hits and three walks in five innings while striking out one in his team's 6-4, extra-innings win over the Rays.

Pelfrey racked up a high workload in a short amount of time yet again, throwing 92 pitches in his five innings of action. He hasn't thrown more than five innings in any of his last three starts despite topping 90 pitches in each. Pelfrey owns a 6:86 ERA and brutal 8:15 K:BB ratio in 19 2/3 innings. His next start should come Tuesday at home against the Dodgers.
