Twins Sweep Brewers

The Twins used four home runs Thursday to down the Brewers, 8-6, at Target Field.  Ryan Doumit connected for a two-run long ball, while Chris Parmelee, Brian Dozier and Joe Mauer each blasted solo shots.  P.J. Walters improved to 2-and-0 despite giving up four runs on 10 hits over six innings.  Minnesota swept the four-game home-and-home series.

The Twins start a three-game series with the Seattle Mariners Friday at Target Field.  Mike Pelfrey will take the mound for the Twins.  He is 3-and-5 with a 6.85 ERA in 10 starts this season.  The M’s will counter with Hisashi Iwakuma, who is 5-and-1 with a 2.35 ERA.

The Twins have placed infielder Trevor Plouffe on the 15-day disabled list with a left calf strain.  The move comes just a day after reinstating Plouffe from the seven-day concussion DL.  The Twins recalled infielder Chris Colabello from Triple-A Rochester to fill the roster spot.
