Brian Duensing earned the win in relief throwing 2 shutout innings.  Matt Capps threw a scoreless 9th inning for the save.  The Twins are 19-33 and will play at Cleveland again today at 2:05, pregame on WJON at 1:35.  Lefthander Scott Diamond (3-1) gets the start on the mound for the Twins and righthander Justin Masterson (2-4) toes the rubber for Cleveland.
