(AP) Mike Pelfrey pitched six effective innings, Trevor Plouffe hit a two-run homer and the Minnesota Twins beat Cleveland 4-2 on Sunday to stop the Indians' six-game winning streak.


Justin Morneau drove in a run with a bases-loaded single in the sixth while Joe Mauer, who was in a 5-for-43 slump, added an RBI double in the seventh for his 1,300th career hit.


Pelfrey (3-3), who allowed nine earned runs in losing his two previous starts, slowed down an Indians lineup that produced 53 runs during the winning streak. The right-hander gave up one run and four hits while striking out seven in his longest outing of the season.


Plouffe homered to left off Corey Kluber (2-1) with one out in the second, his fourth of the season and second in the series. Chris Parmelee was aboard on a walk.
