Trevor Plouffe had an RBI single and scored in a four-run ninth inning for the Twins in Thursday's 8-4 win over the Red Sox.

The Twins took the lead in the ninth inning when Joe Mauer dropped down a bunt and Pablo Sandoval couldn't handle a throw to third base, but Plouffe provided some insurance after hanging in with an 11-pitch at-bat against Boston's closer Koji Uehara. The 28-year-old finished the day 1-for-5 and had just one hit in 16 at-bats in the series, but he still owns a solid .261/.333/.452 batting line with eight home runs and 30 RBI across 50 games this season.

Plouffe chipped in an RBI single in that inning, too, on his way to a 3-for-5 day. The Twins racked up 19 hits in the win. Plouffe's now homered in back-to-back games, giving him five for the season. With the recent power surge, he's boosted his slash-line to .278/.356/.478.

Apr 18 - 11:23 AM

Trevor Plouffe delivered a walk-off solo homer in a 3-2 win over the Indians in 11 innings on Friday night.

How's that for a slump-buster? Plouffe came into Friday's action hitting .133 and went hitless over his first four at-bats before taking Bryan Shaw deep to leadoff the bottom of the 11th and send the Target Field fans home happy. The 28-year-old hasn't been able to replicate the power production he had in 2012, but he's capable of being a useful corner infielder in deeper mixed leagues.
