Twins 6, Indians 3
At Minneapolis, Michael Cuddyer hit a tying, three-run homer in a six-run eighth against Chris Perez (0-1), who allowed the go-ahead run to score on a wild pitch. Pinch-hitter Jason Kubel followed with a two-run, upper-deck homer.
Ron Mahay (2-1) pitched a scoreless inning, and Joe Nathan got his 39th save.
