Cleveland, OH -- Josh Willingham went 4-for-5 with a two-run homer and four RBI, and young Minnesota starter Liam Hendriks pitched six solid innings of two-run ball, as the Minnesota Twins downed the Cleveland Indians, 6-4, Wednesday in the second of a three-game set at Progressive Field.

Hendriks (1-7) gave up just two hits while striking out two and walking two. It was his first victory in the big leagues.

His counterpart of the night, Indians starter Zach McAllister (5-8), didn't fare as well, taking the loss while allowing eight hits and four runs in just 4 1/3 innings.

Jason Kipnis had two RBI for Cleveland, which is now 2-12 in their last 14 meetings against the Twins.
