MINNEAPOLIS (AP) --Kevin Correia threw six sharp innings for his first win in a month, Joe Mauer and Justin Morneau each had two hits and a walk, and Minnesota beat Cleveland 3-2 on Saturday night for its fourth-straight win. Correia (7-6) allowed only three hits -- one of them a two-run homer by Jason Kipnis -- with one walk and three strikeouts. The Indians entered the day 1 games behind Detroit in the AL Central and led 2-0 after Kipnis' homer in the sixth. But Corey Kluber -- who had pitched five shutout innings up to that point -- left the game with tightness in his left hip, and the Twins pounced on a couple of Cleveland infield miscues to take the lead. The Indians have lost two straight after heading into the All-Star break with a four-game winning streak. Cleveland's lineup sputtered against Correia early, failing to reach base in the first three innings. Kluber was just as good, though, not allowing a run for the second-consecutive start. Minnesota had base runners in each of the first three innings against Kluber, but the 27-year-old righty didn't allow any of them past second. Things turned in Minnesota's favor when Rich Hill (1-2) came out for the sixth instead of Kluber, thanks in part to a bad throw from Lonnie Chisenhall at third. With runners on second and third and no one out, Ryan Doumit reached on a fielder's choice when Chisenhall tried to get Mauer at the plate. Chisenhall's throw sailed past catcher Carlos Santana's glove, and Mauer scored to start the rally. Chris Colabello followed with his first-career RBI, and Clete Thomas reached base when Kipnis bobbled a double-play ball, allowing Doumit to score to put Minnesota up 3-2. Brian Duensing, Jared Burton and Casey Fien combined for two scoreless innings, and Glen Perkins pitched the ninth for his 23rd save in 25 chances. Notes: Twins manager Ron Gardenhire left the dugout due to illness. . Indians manager Terry Francona confirmed RHP Zach McAllister was "good to go" to start Tuesday at Seattle after missing six weeks with a sprained middle finger on his throwing hand. McAllister threw a bullpen session on Saturday. Asked if he views McAllister's return as having the same impact as a mid-season trade to shore up the rotation, Francona said: "You can look at it like we're getting a guy that we haven't had. That's actually a nice way to look at it." . Colabello is 1-8 since being recalled Friday after making a name for himself as a Triple-A slugger. "He's earned a shot here to get some swings. Everybody's going to go through the nerves part of it. Hopefully he'll get past that," Gardenhire said. . The Twins go for the sweep Sunday when they send Scott Diamond (5-8) to the mound. Cleveland counters with Justin Masterson (10-7).
