Lee, Blake Lead Tribe To Victory
He walked Delmon Young with one out in the second inning, gave up a leadoff single to Matt Tolbert in the fourth, and allowed Joe Mauer to reach on a one-out infield single in the seventh. After both hits, Lee got the next Twins batter to bounce into a double play.
Rafael Perez (5.40 ERA) worked the ninth, yielding an infield single to Nick Punto. He then fanned Carlos Gomez and Tolbert to end it.
Blake (.183) went 2-for-4, hitting his first homer of the season off reliever Juan Rincon in the seventh. He also had a two-run single in the second after Twins starter Francisco Liriano walked the bases loaded.
Victor Martinez (.357) had an RBI single in the fifth.
Cleveland has won 15 of the last 20 meetings with their AL Central rivals, outscoring the Twins 100-49 over that span.
