Nathan becomes the all-time saves leader for the Twins breaking a tie with Rick Aguilera.  Nick Blackburn started the game and threw 6 2/3 innings with 6 hits and 1 run allowed but didn’t figure in the final decision.

Minnesota is 52-65 and is 9 1/2 games back of Detroit for first place in the American League Central.  The Twins are off today and will begin a 3-game series at Cleveland at 6:05 Friday night, pregame on WJON at 5:35.  Righthander Carl Pavano (6-9) gets the start on the mound for the Twins and righthander Justin Masterson (9-7) toes the rubber for the Indians.
