The Twins finally got to Tomlin in the seventh as Chris Colabello slugged his fourth home run of the season. It was a solo homer for Minnesota, he put the team on the scoreboard.

Tomlin exited the game after 6 2/3 innings of work. He held the Twins to one run on four hits.

The Indians bullpen did the rest of the job, Bryan Shaw closed it out to pick up the save.

It wasn't the start Sam Deduno was hoping for. He gave up two runs in each of the first two innings and the Twins quickly fell behind 4-0, Tuesday night. It was Deduno's first start since August of last season. He finished five innings.
