Plouffe covers it all after Twins win

Trevor Plouffe's big day was one of many for the Twins as they avoided a Royals sweep.

Yordano Ventura opens up

If you want to know what went wrong for Yordano Ventura and the Royals on Sunday, take a look at the first two batters in the fifth inning. The score was 3-0 Twins--the Royals still had a shot--and Ventura had the inning's leadoff hitter, Trevor Plouffe, 0-2. Catcher Salvador Perez set up low and away--why give a guy 0-2 anything to hit?--but Ventura missed high in the zone. Plouffe hit a triple.

Twins 10, Indians 7: Very Hit, Such Offense

Twins win! Six games into 2014, and the Minnesota Twins have scored 39 runs. Consistency in producing runs is definitely going to be an issue this summer, but the Twins have blown it out of the water so far. And who do we have to thank for it?
