Plouffe and Willingham instrumental in Twins win
Josh Willingham and Trevor Plouffe had led a two man home run and fetched a win for their team. They might not be placed on the array of the All –Star but had given their team one of the biggest wins.
In front of a jam packed park of strength about 37 thousand Willingham got his 17th hit. Also, Plouffe got his 17th and 18th hit and forced Minnesota go pass royals by 10-8.
A three run was also fetched by Drew Butera and marked a high in the season. It meant a lot for the Twins at the target field.
Five times both of the players, Trevour Plouffe and Josh Willingham, went to the yard and exchanged the lead of the home run of the team.
When asked about their play Plouffe said, “According to me it’s a mere coincidence. Over the period of the whole year there have been many things that I got to learn from him. One of them is that I learnt to know myself better. I learnt a lot about my potential regarding the hitting I can do. Of-late both of us are practising very hard in our strength areas and are looking to contribute to the team’s scoreboard.”
When asked about the Plouffe’s performance, Ron Gardenhire, manager of Twins, said, “He has been sensational for the team. Over the period of time he has consolidated on the third base. It is that same position where our players were facing problems. He has got a natural hitting ability in him and whenever he swings the ball goes out of the park.”
When asked about the performance of the team, the manager of Kansas City, Ned Yost said, “It was the Butera’s homer that had put an end to our hope. But still I am very much proud of my boys for their hard play on the field.”
