Deduno's arm, Florimon's speed spark Twins


MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Samuel Deduno struck out six in seven innings and Pedro Florimon made two stellar defensive plays to go with a double and a triple, lifting the Minnesota Twins to a 7-2 win over the Cleveland Indians on Monday night.

Deduno (6-3) gave up just three hits and walked three, Ryan Doumit homered and Justin Morneau drove in two runs for the Twins, who took the final three games of the four-game series.

Lonnie Chisenhall homered for the stumbling Indians, who are an AL-worst 15-41 since the All-Star break to fall into a tie with the Twins for last place in the Central division.

Justin Masterson (11-13) gave up six runs and seven hits in 6 2-3 innings to take the loss.
