(AP) Josh Willingham hit two home runs, including a two-run shot in the eighth that put the Twins in front for good, to lead Minnesota past the Oakland Athletics 4-3 Tuesday night.


Oswaldo Arcia also homered for the Twins, who snapped Oakland's three-game winning streak and prevented the A's from stretching their two-game lead over Texas in the AL West. They also spoiled a solid outing by A's starter Jarrod Parker, who tossed six strong innings.


Arcia singled off reliever Sean Doolittle to lead off the eighth. Doolittle struck out Ryan Doumit before being pulled for Ryan Cook (6-4), and Willingham followed by launching a 2-0 pitch an estimated 439 feet into the middle deck for his second multi-homer game this season.


Anthony Swarzak (2-2) pitched a scoreless eighth to pick up the win, and Glen Perkins pitched the ninth for his 34th save in 38 chances.
