Thomas Homers Off Blanton, Twins Beat Angels 4-3

After driving in a pair of runs with a homer and a double, Clete Thomas had another chance to do some damage in the eighth inning with runners at the corners and none out. He struck out against Dane De La Rosa, but more than made up for that disappointment in the bottom half by robbing pinch-hitter Chris Iannetta of a go-ahead homer to help the Minnesota Twins beat the Los Angeles Angels 4-3 Monday night and hand Joe Blanton his major league-worst 13th defeat.

Plouffe’s Return Sparks Twins To Win Over Tigers

Trevor Plouffe had three hits, including a two-run homer, in his return to the Twins lineup, and Sam Deduno held Detroit in check over seven innings in Minnesota’s 6-3 victory over the Tigers on Saturday night. Plouffe, back after missing 22 games because of a concussion and left calf strain, was a triple shy of the cycle. He drove in three runs in support of Deduno, who has allowed only five earned runs in his last five starts.

Doumit, Deduno Lead Twins To 3-0 Win Over Royals

Sam Deduno (2-1) allowed four hits over six-plus innings for the Twins, who have rebounded nicely from a 10-game losing streak to win eight of 10 after a 3-0 win over the Royals Tuesday night.

Twins Snap Skid With 3-2 Win Over Tigers

Joe Mauer homered and had three hits, helping the Minnesota Twins snap a 10-game losing streak with a 3-2 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Saturday. Mauer had already earned the ire of Detroit fans when he broke up Anibal Sanchez’s no-hit bid in the ninth inning Friday night. He was booed when came to bat in the first inning Saturday — then booed some more after his solo homer to right field.
