Twins Vs. Brewers Final Score: Trevor Plouffe 11th Inning Homer Gives Minnesota 4th Straight Win

Powered by a Trevor Plouffe solo home run in the 11th inning, the Minnesota Twins extended their winning streak to a season-high four games in exciting fashion on Saturday at Milwaukee's Miller Park.

Twins starter Carl Pavano, who reportedly felt fantastic after a week of light work to iron out his shoulder inflammation, gave up two earned runs over six innings with six strikeouts to record the no decision. Minnesota held a two-run advantage heading into the bottom of the eighth, but set-up man Jared Burton was tagged for a two-run bomb by Aramis Ramirez that tied the game and eventually forced extras.

The 25-year-old Plouffe entered the game in the 11th as a pinch hitter and saw just three pitches before taking Milwaukee reliever Manny Parra to dead left center. Plouffe was hitting just .135 with three home runs on the season before the game-winning blast kept the Twins' streak of impressive performances alive.

Now 14-26 and within shouting distance of a .500 record, the Twins will send 2-3 veteran Jason Marquis to the hill for Sunday's series finale against the Brewers.
