Minneapolis, MN (Sports Network) – Alexi Casilla had two hits and drove in four
runs to lead the Minnesota Twins to a 12-5 win over the Cleveland Indians in the
middle tilt of a three-game set at Target Field. Steve Johnson
Jersey
. Josh Willingham hit a two-run homer and Denard Span and
Ben Revere both knocked in a pair of runs for the Twins, who won for the second
straight game after dropping four of five. Samuel Deduno (2-0) earned the win
after giving up one run on two hits and five walks with six strikeouts over
seven innings. “(Deduno) has a lot of movement on his pitches, with him I just
kind of sit in the middle and just tell him to aim down,” Twins catcher
Joe Mauer said. “He gave us a good start tonight, and that first inning he was
kind of all over the place but he settled down and we played good (defense)
behind him.” Carlos Santana hit a two-run homer and finished with three RBI for
the Tribe, who have lost three of their last four. Justin Masterson (7-9) was
pegged with the loss after giving up 10 runs—eight earned—on seven hits
over 5 2/3 innings. Masterson retired the first 11 batters he faced, but
struggled from that point until he was pulled in the sixth. “They ate us up
again offensively. Masterson started the game really good with a really good
sinker, retiring the first 11 guys. After that he just struggled closing innings
out,” Indians manager Manny Acta said. “Eight of those 10 runs came with two
outs, and a couple bad calls went against him, but still you have to close the
inning out and he couldnt make pitches when he had to.” The Indians took a 1-0
lead in the first. Shin-Shoo Choo singled, stole second then moved to third when
Jason Kipnis grounded out. Santana followed with a single to push Choo across.
Willinghams two-run homer in the fourth put the Twins up 2-1. Joe Mauer reached
on a walk before Willingham clobbered his 27th homer of the season. Minnesota
added three in the fifth and five in the sixth and one in the seventh to go up
11-1. In the fifth Danny Valencia reached on a throwing error and Brian Dozier
singled before Casilla ripped a triple off the wall in right to clear the bases.
Revere followed with a single to plate Casilla. With the bases loaded in the
sixth Casilla doubled to knock in two runs. Span followed with a two-run double
of his own and Revere added an RBI base hit. Valencias double in the seventh
scored Willingham and put the Twins up 11-1. Santana hit a two-run homer in the
eighth to make it 11-3. But Minnesota got the run back in the home half on
Mauers RBI single. The Indians were able to add two in the ninth, and had the
bases loaded with two outs but Casey Fien struck out Santana to end the threat.
Santana narrowly missed a grand slam that would have made it 12-9 but the ball
curved foul. Following the game the Twins dealt pitcher Francisco Liriano to the
Chicago White Sox in exchange for infielder Eduardo Escobar and pitcher
Pedro Hernandez. Liriano is 3-10 with a 5.31 ERA in 22 games (17 starts) this
season. The 28- year-old threw a no-hitter against the White Sox on May 3, 2011.
Escobar, 23, who is hitting .207 in 36 games this season, was traded only
moments after the White Sox beat the Rangers, 5-2, Saturday night. Escobar went
2-for-5 with an RBI in that game. Hernandez, a 23-year-old lefty, made a spot
start for the White Sox on July 18 at Boston and allowed 12 hits and eight runs
over four-plus innings in a 10-1 loss. He has also combined to go 8-2 with a
2.94 ERA in 15 appearances (14 starts) this season between Double-A Birmingham
and Triple-A Charlotte this season. Game Notes Valencia snapped an 0-for-28
slump with his double in the seventh…The Twins have outscored the Indians 23-5
in the first two games of the series…Revere extended his hitting-streak to 11
games…Masterson is 1-5 in 12 career starts against Minnesota…The Indians are
