Samuel Deduno pitched seven strong innings for his second major league win and Josh Willingham hit his 27th homer of the season, leading the Minnesota Twins to a 12-5 win over the Cleveland Indians on Saturday night.
Deduno (2-0) allowed two hits and struck out a career-high six in his fourth big league start. Alexi Casilla drove in four runs for the Twins, who routed the Indians for the second consecutive night after being swept three games in Chicago.
Cleveland starter Justin Masterson (7-9) allowed 10 runs - eight earned - over 5 2-3 innings. The Indians are 6-10 since the All-Star break.
Denard Span, Ben Revere and Willingham each drove in two runs for Minnesota, which has outscored Cleveland 23-5 in the first two games of the weekend series.
Deduno opened the game by giving up a single to Shin-Soo Choo, who scored to give the Indians the lead. But Deduno shut down Cleveland's lineup after the first, retiring 17 of the next 21 batters he faced.
