Trevor Plouffe hit his 21st home run of the season for the Twins to lead off the bottom of the ninth inning and tie the score at 3-3 in their game against the Royals, a game that Minnesota went on to win in the 10th inning. It was only the second time this year that Plouffe drove in a run in the seventh inning or later that tied the score or gave the Twins a lead. His only other late-inning, lead-changing RBI this season came when he hit a tiebreaking solo homer in the 11th inning at Milwaukee on May 19. Source: Elias
Not exactly a strong clutch hitter……..
