MINNEAPOLIS -- Kevin Correia threw six sharp innings for his first win in a month, Joe Mauer and Justin Morneau each had two hits and a walk, and Minnesota beat Cleveland 3-2 on Saturday night for its fourth-straight win.

Correia (7-6) allowed only three hits -- one of them a two-run homer by Jason Kipnis -- with one walk and three strikeouts. The Indians entered the day 1 games behind Detroit in the AL Central and led 2-0 after Kipnis' homer in the sixth.

But Corey Kluber -- who had pitched five shutout innings up to that point -- left the game with tightness in his left hip, and the Twins pounced on a couple of Cleveland infield miscues to take the lead.

The Indians have lost two straight after heading into the All-Star break with a four-game winning streak.

Cleveland's lineup sputtered against Correia early, failing to reach base in the first three innings. Kluber was just as good, though, not allowing a run for the second-consecutive start. Minnesota had base runners in each of the first three innings against Kluber, but the 27-year-old righty didn't allow any of them past second.
