(Tribune photo by Rand Middleton) Minnesota Twins third baseman Trevor Plouffe has the ball in plenty of time to tag out former Twin and current Detroit Tiger Torii Hunter for the third out in the fifth inning Wednesday at Target Field in Minneapolis. Hunter was trying to move over from first on a single by Miguel Cabrera but right fielder Chris Parmelee nailed the throw.

Eduardo Escobar’s two-run double with one out in the ninth inning lifted the Twins to a 3-2 victory over the Tigers on Wednesday.
