The problem is after the top twelve, the 3rd basemen fall off the map like a 12th century explorer. Here’s you, “Hey, I’m gonna go to India heading west.” You’re whistling, everything...

MINNEAPOLIS -- The Trevor Plouffe of old might have let his 10th inning error eat at him. His two strikeouts? Those might have lingered, too.

Such was the case Friday against Cleveland when Plouffe delivered a walk-off single to lift the Twins to a 5...

Twins notch milestone homer despite setback

Plouffe's 11th homer of the year was relatively meaningless in the grand scheme of Friday's game, but it was an historic...
