Sizzling Glen Perkins snags another save on Thursday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Twins closer Glen Perkins raised his scoreless game streak to seven Thursday by shutting down the Rays in the ninth inning.

Perkins struck out the first two batters he faced, including Evan Longoria, before retiring James Loney on a flyout to nail down his fifth save. He has given up just one hit and one walk in the last seven innings with 11 strikeouts.

Ricky Nolasco a lucky winner against Tampa Bay
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

A poor performance Thursday against the Rays did not prevent Twins ace Ricky Nolasco from nailing down his second victory.

Nolasco benefited from an offensive explosion to snag the win despite giving up six runs on 10 hits in six innings. He walked two and struck out one.

The right-hander, who owns a 6.67 earned run average, will seek to lower it Wednesday against the visiting Dodgers.

Alex Meyer has success with new grip on changeup
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Twins starting pitcher prospect Alex Meyer tied a career high with 11 strikeouts Wednesday during a no-decision for Triple-A Rochester. He allowed three hits and three walks in 6 2/3 scoreless innings.

Meyer attributed his success Wednesday to a new grip on his changeup. Instead of throwing a circle changeup, Meyer threw a three-finger changeup. Rochester catcher Dan Rohlfing has urged Meyer to throw his changeup more often.

"It was something I had been working on, and he made me feel confident in it," Meyer said of the pitch, per MLB.com. "I was getting pretty good sink on it. It was moving a little bit. It was coming out of my hand well. I can throw it at full arm speed. I don't have to slow things down. It had a little run and sink to it, and it was easier for me to command than the circle change was."

Meyer has a 3.48 ERA and .236 opponents' batting average through four starts. He has 24 strikeouts to eight walks in 20 2/3 innings.

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.
