Willingham’s third inning, three-run home run gave the Twins a 4-1 lead, and Brian Dozier hit a two-run shot in the fifth to make it a 6-2 game.

Twins starter Sam Deduno went five innings and allowed two runs on six hits to earn the win. Glen Perkins gave up a run in the ninth but earned his 15th save in the game.
