Twins shortstop Eduardo Escobar cracks first home run of the year
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Twins shortstop Eduardo Escobar went 1 for 5 at the plate in Minnesota's 8-5 win over the Mariners Saturday.

Escobar did his only damage in the fourth inning when he ripped a 3-2 pitch off James Paxton over the left center field wall for a solo home run, his first of the season. Escobar, who also struck out twice, boosted his average to .171 in 35 at-bats this season.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Twins closer Glen Perkins worked a nearly perfect ninth inning in Minnesota's 8-5 win over the Mariners Saturday, leading to his fourth save of the season.

Perkins allowed one hit on an infield single by Willie Bloomquist, but finished things off by getting Austin Jackson to groundout to third base. Perkins lowered his ERA to 1.29 in seven innings of work with seven strikeouts and no walks.

Twins' Paul Molitor considering Joe Mauer in leadoff role
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Twins manager Paul Molitor is looking for a spark at the top of the batting order. He thinks that spark may be in his top player, Joe Mauer, according to MLB.com.

"I had him potentially doing that," Molitor said. "I had him also hitting second behind [Brian] Dozier. There were points made regarding Dozier's propensity to be able to score runs last year and Joe hit behind him quite a bit, so we talked about different combinations of how to get those guys in there."

Mauer has never hit lead off in his career.

"You can go to your sabermetrics experts and a lot of times they're going to come up with Joe at the top of the lineup, and I understand that. How that would play in terms of him getting a chance to get hits with men in scoring position and do some other things that he's been doing pretty well, I'm not sure."

Mauer is hitting .271 with five RBI in 59 at-bats this season.

Twins pitcher Trevor May leaves after line drive bounces off his arm
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Twins pitcher Trevor May was forced to leave Saturday's game against the Mariners after taking a line driver off his arm, according to the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

With one out in the third, May gave up a liner to third baseman Kyle Seager, who ripped it right back to him. May tried to stay in the game, but was replaced by Tim Stauffer. He allowed two runs on three hits with five strikeouts in 3 1/3 innings against Seattle.

"It was one of the few spots near the elbow where it is OK to get hit by a ball and it just looks like a little bruising," May said to the Star Tribune. "At that point, I just wanted to make a play and then deal with it after."

X-rays were negative and May is considered day-to-day with the injury.

Plate discipline leads to success for Twins 3B Trevor Plouffe
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

As cold as Twins third baseman Trevor Plouffe was to start the season, that's how hot he's been since.

Plouffe was batting a mere .133 with one RBI through nine games. He is 10-for-23 in six games since with two doubles, one homer, two RBI and an on-base percentage of .480. How does he explain that? Discipline at the plate.

"I think that's a product of laying off borderline pitches and getting myself into better counts," he told MLB.com. "If the pitcher sees you swinging at those borderline pitches, he's just going to continue to throw those and you're not going to have great at-bats. So if you're able to shrink the zone down, that helps. And when I'm going well, that's what I do."

Plouffe led the Twins with 80 RBI last year.
