Johan Santana tossed seven solid innings, and the Twins used a five-run seventh-inning rally to complete a three-game sweep. Michael Cuddyer's two-run double gave the Twins the lead, but Joe Nathan was needed to close out the one-run victory.
Jarrod Washburn cruised through six innings before running into trouble in the seventh, when the Twins scored five times. Raul Ibanez hit a three-run homer in the ninth, but the Mariners couldn't get any closer.
