Cleveland jumped out to the early lead in the first inning when they scored 3 runs on 4 hits. Minnesota had a chance to come back in the 9th but they came up short.
Don Schulze(4-8) was the winner allowing 4 runs in 7 and 2/3 innings. Tom Waddell recorded his 7th save. John Butcher(3-10) was tagged with the loss.
'I was a little good, a little bad and a little ugly.' said Schulze, 'I was just giving us a chance to win.'
