A three-run sixth inning gave the Twins the lead for the first time and the bullpen pitched its second shutout in as many days, this one spanning the final three innings, as Minnesota won in front of 38,626, the fifth sellout at Target Field this season.

Joe Mauer and Justin Morneau got the sixth inning started with a walk and a single, and Ryan Doumit, Chris Colabello and Clete Thomas all drove in runs.
