MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Josh Willingham's tiebreaking home run in the eighth inning sent the Minnesota Twins to a 4-3 victory over the Cleveland Indians last night. Kurt Suzuki had a two-run double among his three hits as the Twins beat the Indians at home for the first time in more than 11 months. Glen Perkins pitched a perfect ninth for his 23rd save in 26 chances.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Cleveland Indians shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera has left the game with the Minnesota Twins because of lower back spasms. Cabrera played two innings last night before being taken out. There was no word from the team on exactly how he was injured. Cabrera has played in 94 of 99 games this season.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Minnesota Timberwolves have agreed to terms on a one-year deal with Robbie Hummel. Hummel averaged 3.4 points in just over 12 minutes per game as a rookie last season. Bringing Hummel back gives president and coach Flip Saunders a shooter off the bench with the ability to play multiple positions.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Minnesota Lynx forward Maya Moore has been named the WNBA's Western Conference Player of the Week for the second consecutive week. Moore scored a game-high 32 points in a 93-82 Lynx win over the Tulsa Shock last week. Moore posted her ninth 30-point-plus performance of the season. Moore also added nine rebounds, five assists and two steals.
