A 180 For Duffey: Twins Win
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Tyler Duffey took a no-hit bid into the sixth inning of his second big league game and pitched the Minnesota Twins over the Cleveland Indians 4-1 Saturday night.
Duffey, roughed up by Toronto earlier this month in his debut, came back to earn his first victory in the majors. A one-out double by Francisco Lindor in the sixth was the only hit Duffey (1-1) permitted before leaving at the end of the inning.
The 24-year-old righty struck out seven and worked around five walks. Relievers Casey Fien, Kevin Jepsen and Glen Perkins each pitched an inning in the combined four-hitter.
Eddie Rosario and Chris Herrmann hit back-to-back homers in the fifth off Josh Tomlin (0-1), who made his first major league start since shoulder surgery in April.
Brian Dozier added a late two-run homer for Minnesota, which had lost three straight to the Indians.
