Valencia pushes Twins past Indians again
Valenica gets key hit again and Twins earn four-game split against Indians with 7-5 win
By The Associated Press

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) ' Danny Valencia singled home the go-ahead run for the second straight day, this time in the eighth inning, and the Minnesota Twins beat the Cleveland Indians 7-5 in a sloppy game played on another sweltering day at Target Field.

Minnesota salvaged a split in the four-game series with the AL Central-leading Indians.

Matt Capps (3-5) earned the win in relief of Nick Blackburn, who gave up four runs ' one earned ' in six innings. Joe Nathan gave up a solo homer to Lonnie Chisenhall, but earned his sixth save.

Valencia, who won Tuesday night's game with an RBI single in the ninth, lined a ball to right, which just eluded second baseman Orlando Cabrera and scored Alexi Casilla to make it 5-4. Tsuyoshi Nishioka added a two-run single.

Tony Sipp (4-2) allowed three runs in relief.
