Twins fall behind by 8 runs early, lose to Reds 11-7

CINCINNATI (AP) The Minnesota Twins knew all about Billy Hamilton's speed. Nothing they did could slow him - or the rest of the Reds' lineup, for that matter. Hamilton scored three times in the first three innings to help Cincinnati open a huge lead, and the Reds held on for an 11-7 victory over the Minnesota Twins on Monday night. The Reds sent 10 batters to the plate for five...

Twins' pitching woes return in loss to Reds

Using relievers becomes tricky enough in interleague play when the potential need for a pinch hitter arises. A short outing by the starting pitcher doesn't make things any easier. For the second time in four games, the Minnesota Twins' bullpen was forced into action plenty early in a National League park. Twins starter Mike Pelfrey lasted two-plus innings Monday -- his shortest start...

Split the difference: Mike Pelfrey's revival due to revamped splitter grip

There have been a few surprises on this year's Minnesota Twins team. Right-hander Mike Pelfrey has been among the biggest. One pitch is largely responsible for Pelfrey's revival, too. It was during spring training this year when Pelfrey -- who missed most of last season with an injury -- talked with new bullpen coach Eddie Guardado about a particular pitch. Pelfrey knew that Guardado...

Watch Mike Pelfrey ward off sunflower seeds during dugout interview with stylish hat

Mike Pelfrey is a cagey veteran when it comes to dugout interviews. He showed us this much during Friday's Twins-Cubs game, when his teammates attempted to foil his in-game interview with the 'ole sunflower seed prank. But Pelfrey, however, came prepared. As the seeds began to fall, the right-hander politely stopped the interview and pulled out of his pocket a beekeeper hat, which...

Mike Pelfrey has been everything the Twins wanted

The Minnesota Twins are somehow eight games over .500 and just one game back of the first-place Kansas City Royals in the tough American League Central. Their offense has been unbelievably clutch and their pitching has exceeded expectations. Much of that has to do with a man named Mike Pelfrey. As soon as the Minnesota Twins announced Pelfrey would take suspended Ervin Santana...

The Twins need Mike Pelfrey to step up

Mike Pelfrey, welcome to the Minnesota Twins starting rotation…again. On Friday, Major League Baseball handed Twins’ starter Ervin Santana an 80-game suspension for using performance-enhancing drugs, thus opening a spot in the rotation for Pelfrey. While losing a strong No. 2 starter in Santana is a pretty big punch-to-the-gut for a team right on the brink of turning the corner...

Twins pull off great prank on Wichita State alum Mike Pelfrey

Minnesota Twins pitcher Mike Pelfrey is a proud Wichita State alum, and before their brief run in the NCAA Tournament last week, Twins manager Ron Gardenhire called Pelfrey into his office under the guise of “calling the team to pump them up”. The only problem was that Pelfrey wasn’t talking to the Shockers – he was talking to his teammates in the Twins clubhouse. Here...

Twins' Pelfrey plans to take game to another level in 2014

MINNEAPOLIS -- In his first season with the Minnesota Twins, right-hander Mike Pelfrey was given a corner locker in the clubhouse, a spot typically reserved for a veteran. While Pelfrey was indeed entering his eighth season last year, he was still a newcomer in Minnesota. Yet it didn't take long for the Twins' younger players to gravitate toward Pelfrey, who served as a mentor and...
