Deduno, Twins Take Series Opener in Cleveland

Samuel Deduno pitched six solid innings and Josh Willingham busted out of a slump with a two-run double in the seventh, leading the Minnesota Twins to a 5-1 win over Cleveland on Friday night, slowing the Indians' climb toward a wild-card spot.
 
Deduno (8-7) allowed just one run and three hits for his first win since July 27 as the Twins continued to befuddle the Indians. Minnesota is 14-7 against Cleveland since last September.
 
Willingham was in an 0-for-15 slide before his double off Cody Allen put the Twins ahead 4-1.
 
Ubaldo Jimenez (9-8) struck out 10 in six innings, but the Indians didn't support the right-hander and lost ground in the crowded wild-card field as well as the AL Central.
