Nolasco, Plouffe help Twins stay hot in 7-2 win over Red Sox

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) It's been a rocky season and a quarter for Ricky Nolasco since he joined the Minnesota Twins. The weight of a four-year, $49 million contract proved too much to bear in his first season, and his second year started with a trip to the disabled list.

He walked off the field on Monday to a warm ovation from the same fans that have booed him so often, and it looks like Nolasco and the Twins are picking up steam right at the same time.

Nolasco struck out five in 7 2-3 innings and Trevor Plouffe hit a three-run homer to lead the surging Twins to a 7-2 victory over the Boston Red Sox on Monday.
