MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Zach McAllister won for the first time in almost three months, Ryan Raburn homered and the Cleveland Indians beat the Minnesota Twins 5-2 on Tuesday night.
Cleveland had lost seven of its last eight and posted a 6.00 ERA during that stretch.
Coming off his worst start of the season on Thursday against Detroit, McAllister (5-7) bounced back and held Minnesota to one earned run and four hits in six innings. He struck out seven in his first win since May 23.
Josh Willingham homered for the Twins in the second inning, Minnesota's 23rd straight run from a home run.
The Indians led 3-1 in the sixth when Samuel Deduno (7-6) hit Carlos Santana in the toe with a pitch. Plate umpire Adam Hamari initially ruled that Deduno's pitch didn't hit him, but awarded Santana first base after conferring with the rest of his crew and changing the call.
Rayburn then lined a home run into the left-center field bleachers.
