Trevor Plouffe drove in three runs and reached safely in all four plate appearances as Minnesota's bats awoke from a two-game slumber Saturday at Target Field. Joe Mauer singled in two runs, including the game-winner with two outs during a three-run seventh inning.

The Twins chased Detroit starter Anibal Sanchez after 3 2/3 innings less than a month after he no hit them for 8 1/3 at Comerica Park.

Meanwhile, Sam Deduno matched his season high with seven innings, earning his third victory against one defeat in five starts since being recalled last month.
