Twins Third Straight 30 May 13

Twins pitcher Samuel Deduno won his first game of the season for Minnesota, holding the Brewers to one run on four hits over seven innings in a 4-1 win last night at Target Field. Aaron Hicks homered and made sensational defensive play in the fourth inning to help the cause. Ryan Doumit drove in two runs with a first-inning double for Minnesota. Glen Perkins earned his 11th save with two strikeouts in a scoreless ninth inning. The Twins won their third straight. Former Twin Carlos Gomez had two of the Brewers’ five hits in the loss. Marco Estrada dropped to 4-and-3 after allowing four runs in seven innings for Milwaukee, which has lost five in-a-row. The same two teams play tonight in Minneapolis with a 7:10 p.m. scheduled first pitch. Coverage begins after local action on KNUJ and SAM.

Twins Reinstate Plouffe From DL

The Twins reinstated third baseman Trevor Plouffe from the seven-day concussion disabled list yesterday. Plouffe suffered the injury on May 21st in Atlanta. The Twins optioned infielder Chris Colabello to Triple-A Rochester to make room on the roster. Plouffe ended up not playing in last night’s win, however, after complaining of a sore leg.
