MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Justin Morneau hit a two-run homer, Brian Duensing threw six innings as a late fill-in for Francisco Liriano and the Minnesota Twins finished a three-game sweep of the Cleveland Indians with a 5-1 victory on Sunday afternoon. Duensing (2-6) lost all four of his previous starts this year, but he needed only 70 pitches to finish six frames and yield to the bullpen after scattering five singles without a walk, giving up one run and striking out two. Ben Revere had two hits, two steals and two RBIs for the Twins. Ubaldo Jimenez (8-10) worked into the seventh and struck out six, but the Indians lost for the eighth time in their last 11 games. They were a season-high 5 games out of first place when the game began.

Twins say goodbye, prepare to face Liriano

MINNEAPOLIS The inevitable came on Saturday night, just hours after recent Twins call-up Samuel Deduno's seven-inning, two-hit night.

Liriano may not be only Twin dealt at deadline

GM Terry Ryan pulled the trigger Saturday on the trade everyone saw coming, moving LHP Francisco Liriano to the Chicago White Sox for infielder Eduardo Escobar and LHP Pedro Hernandez. That doesn't mean he's done dealing. Teams have until 3 p.m. CDT Tuesday to trade players without sending them through waivers. Ryan called the run-up "my most important time of the...

Can White Sox cure Liriano's inconsistency?

With their playoff chances looking ever brighter and a roster full of young, inexperienced players, the White Sox are up for the challenge.

Minnesota Twins trade Francisco Liriano to White Sox

Kenny Williams made another puzzling move when he dealt infielder Eduardo Escobar and left-hander Pedro Hernandez to to the Twins for starter Francisco Liriano. The White Sox have long been questioned for the depth of their farm system and now he has made two deals surrendering five prospects. What’s more, I’m not exactly sure how he has gotten better. Liriano presumably...

Twins GM Ryan still fielding calls from contenders

While watching his team scuffle from the get-go and plummet 17 games under .500, Minnesota Twins general manager Terry Ryan has steadfastly staved off denial. That suits team owner Jim Pohlad, who watched batting practice Friday at Target Field before the Twins' 11-0 rout of the Cleveland Indians. With his team well on its way to consecutive losing seasons for the first time...
