Continued: Gibson steps up with shutout

In the seventh inning with Josh Willingham on second and Trevor Plouffe on first, Doumit hit a deep fly ball that popped in and out of Jacoby Ellsbury’s glove and hit the wall before the Boston center fielder was able to grab it. Willingham, not knowing if the ball was caught or not, stayed at second base. Doumit rounded first and passed Plouffe.

As the ball was thrown back to the infield, Doumit was called out for passing Plouffe, and Plouffe was tagged out. The initial decision was a fielder’s choice for Doumit, but after the game it was changed to a hit.

But, just as pregame activates began Thursday, the play was changed back to a fielder’s choice.

The Twins can have the league look into the decision.

“There’s nothing in the rule book that specifically addresses the play,” said Dustin Morse, the Twins director of baseball communications.

Etc.

• Four police officers from Watertown, Mass., were guests of Twins third baseman Trevor Plouffe at Thursday’s game.

• Cole De Vries will start for Class AA New Britain on Friday as he recovers from forearm tightness. He will be on a 75-pitch limit.
