Twins 4 Indians 1

Santana was on tonight. The only disappointment was that Gardenhire didn't let him finish the game. After Santana came off the mound in the eighth with a 1-0 lead, Gardenhire told him he was done.

The Twins got three more runs in the bottom of the eighth, and so when closer Joe Nathan came in, he had four runs to work with instead of one. Oddly, Nathan does worse with a big lead. He gave up a run, but the game was never in question.
