PHILLIES NOTES:

·    The Phillies lost to the Twins today, 4-3, for their fifth straight loss overall…the Phillies failed to hit a home run tonight for the second straight game after homering in 14 straight coming into the series at Target Field…the Phillies are 6-18 when failing to hit a home run this season…Philadelphia is 4-9 in their last 13 games against American League opponents and are now 6-8 all-time against the Twins.

·    Tyler Cloyd allowed one run on six hit and three walks while striking out two in 5.0 innings…the 5.0 innings are the fewest since going 2.1 innings on May 27 at Boston, a span of three starts…Cloyd has allowed three runs-or-less in nine of his 12 career starts, including seven of his eight road starts…he has walked eight batters over his last two starts (11.2 IP).

·    Domonic Brown (0-for-3) was held hitless tonight for the third straight game…it was the first time with three hitless games since going hitless in four straight games April 16-20…despite not collecting a hit, Brown drove in his 48th run of the season in the first inning and now needs just two to become one of five NL players to reach 50 RBI this season…he has 28 RBI in his last 22 games (since May 20).

·    Ben Revere (3-for-4) is now a career .265 (139-for-525) hitter in 135 games at Target Field…he is hitting .297 (33-for-111) with three doubles and two RBI in his last 34 games…he has a hit in three straight games…the multi-hit game tonight marked his first since June 3…the three hits tonight tie his season high (four times).

·    Michael Young (1-for-4) has at least one hit in six of his last seven games on the road, all on this current road trip…in the seven games on this current road trip he is hitting .379 (11-for-29) with a home run and three RBI…with the RBI tonight he now needs just four RBI to reach 1,000 in his career.


TWINS NOTES: ­

·    The Twins improved their season record at home to 15-14 and have improved to 6-4 in the month of June…Minnesota is now 8-6 all-time against the Phillies, including 5-4 at home…Minnesota is now 20-0 when out-hitting an opponent this season…the Twins collected 12 hits tonight, the 19th time this season they have had at least 10 hits in a game…the Twins have had 10-plus hits in six of their last eight games against the Phillies…the Twins 5-6-7 hitters finished the night going a combined  9-for-11 (.818) with all four runs and two RBI…Twins are 11-9 in one-run games this season, including 6-1 in their last seven one-run games.

·    Mike Pelfrey allowed three runs on five hits and one walk while striking out seven in 7.0 innings…the 7.0 innings are a season-high and the most since going 8.0 innings on April 21, 2012 vs. San Francisco as a Met…the seven strikeouts tied his season-high, also seven on May 5 at Cleveland…the 116 pitches thrown by Pelfrey are the most since also throwing 116 on August 30, 2011 vs. Florida as a member of the Mets…tonight marked his fourth quality start of the season.

·    Josh Willingham (1-for-4) hit his 12th double of the season in the first inning tonight…his 22nd extra-base hit of the season and second straight game with an XBH.

·    Joe Mauer (1-for-2) has at least one hit in each of his last seven games at Target Field, hitting .375 (9-for-24) in those seven games…he also has at least one hit in 14 of his last 15 games at Target Field (since May 10 vs. BAL), hitting .429 (24-for-56) over those 15 games with a .522 on-base percentage…Mauer reached base safely three times tonight, and has now reached base 112 times this season…coming into today his .377 batting average at home was the third best in baseball.

·    Oswaldo Arcia (3-for-4) collected his first multi-hit game since going 2-for-5 on May 10 vs. Baltimore, a span of 12 games…he has six multi-hit games this season…with a double in the eighth inning he now has 12 extra-base hits this season…four of his last seven hits are for extra-bases.

·    Clete Thomas (4-for-4) collected a career-high four hits tonight…his eighth inning double tied the game at 3-3 driving in Arcia from second and he would later score the winning run…he has had three hits eight other times in his career with the last coming on August 30, 2009 vs. Tampa Bay as a member of the Tigers…his double in the fourth inning tonight was his first double since April 17, 2012 at New York-AL…Thomas has started 17 career games in center field, including three starts this season.

·    Eduardo Escobar (2-for-3) recorded his first career bunt hit in the eighth inning…the Twins have 10 bunt hits this season, joining three other teams with at least 10 bunt hits…Florimon leads the Twins with his five bunt hits.

·    Brian Duensing earned his second win in as many days today…it is the first time in his career as a reliever to earn wins in back-to-back outings, and the first time since winning back-to-back starts June 28-July 4, 2011.
