CLEVELAND -- It took extra innings Tuesday night in Cleveland, but the Twins beat the Indians 6-5. Alexi Casilla and Pedro Florimon had RBI singles in the 12th inning to break the tie.

The go-ahead run was set up with a two-out Darin Mastroianni single. He then stole second and then hustled home on Alexi Casilla's infield single.

Denard Span and Joe Mauer led the Twins with three hits apiece.

On the mound, it was P.J. Walters allowing eight hits in the first five innings before being relieved by Brian Duensing, who threw three shutout innings.

Minnesota's bullpen combined for seven innings, and didn't allow a run until Carlos Santana hit a solo home run off of Glen Perkins in the bottom of the 12th.

The win puts Minnesota in a tie with Cleveland for fourth place in the American League Central division.
