MINNEAPOLIS -- This season has long been lost for the Minnesota Twins. The problems created by an overmatched starting rotation and underwhelming performances in the middle infield proved to be too much to overcome. A second straight miserable season has opened the door for a bevy of new faces going forward, and Samuel Deduno and Pedro Florimon are pushing hard to be a part of the solution going into next season. Deduno struck out six in seven innings and Florimon made two stellar defensive plays to go with a double and a triple, lifting the Twins to a 7-2 win over the Cleveland Indians on Monday night. "He knows hes making a good impression on the coaches and the team, and just keep playing the way hes playing, and he feels a lot of confidence hes going to be back next year," second baseman Alexi Casilla said while serving as the 25-year-old Florimons interpreter. Deduno (6-3) gave up just three hits and walked three, Ryan Doumit homered and Justin Morneau drove in two runs for the Twins, who took the final three games of the four-game series. "Everything was working tonight," Deduno said. "Changeup, curveball, slider. Everything was working." Lonnie Chisenhall homered in his first game since June 29 for the stumbling Indians, who are an AL-worst 15-41 since the All-Star break to fall into a tie with the Twins for last place in the Central division. Justin Masterson (11-13) gave up six runs and seven hits in 6 2-3 innings. It was a dangerous game for baserunners. Deduno hit Shin-Soo Choo in the helmet with an errant pickoff attempt in the third, a play reminiscent of the one from Boston reliever Franklin Morales in June that knocked Seattles Franklin Gutierrez out for almost two months. Choo remained in the game. After his RBI double in the seventh, Florimon was hit in the back of the head on a throw from Masterson while diving back to second base. There was an audible thud from the impact, and the shortstop remained down for a minute while trainers rushed to him. He too remained in the game and eventually scored from third on a wild pitch. "He said it just hurt in the moment but nothing major to come out of the game," Casilla said. Being a little wild is nothing new for Deduno, who walked 36 batters in his first eight starts. But the Dominican right-hander has been able to harness his control a little better of late, allowing just 11 hits and walking six in his last three starts. He took a no-hitter into the sixth inning against the Tribe and has now allowed three hits or fewer over seven-plus innings in three of his 12 starts. "I was going, Oh, no. Hes going to throw a 150-pitch no-hitter and Im going to leave him out there," manager Ron Gardenhire said. Deduno was the beneficiary of several solid defensive plays, including a diving catch from Ben Revere in centre field in the second inning, Joe Mauer leaning over the Indians dugout railing to snag a foul ball in the fourth and Florimon barehanding a soft grounder to get Casey Kotchman in the seventh. That play may have been the biggest, because Chisenhall, who broke his right arm after being hit by a pitch from Baltimores Jake Arrieta, hit a solo homer to right field on the next pitch, making it 3-2. Minnesota scored three more in the seventh and Doumit hit a drive to centre in the eighth to put the game away. "We couldnt do anything against Deduno," Indians manager Manny Acta said. "He had a good slider and he threw it at any time in the count, and we couldnt do much against him." Mauer had two hits and an RBI to raise his average to .319 and Casilla added two more highlight-reel plays at second for the Twins. The Indians played without All-Star shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera, who was given the day off after leaving the game on Sunday with a sore right wrist. The injury first flared up last week during batting practice. Cabrera had X-rays that showed no broken bones and is day to day. The Indians (59-82) have lost 11 of their last 15 to fall a season-worst 23 games under .500. NOTES: Acta on Cabrera: "Were not going to put him out there until hes ready to play pain-free." ...

Being the heir to Peyton Manning in Indianapolis is heady stuff for a rookie taking the reins of a franchise that won two games last season. Now, after guiding the Colts back to the playoffs -- and breaking Cam Newtons single-season passing record for a first-year player -- its safe to say Luck exceeded just about all of them. Luck threw for 205 yards Sunday, and his 7-yard touchdown pass to Reggie Wayne on third-and-goal late in the fourth quarter gave the Colts a 20-13 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs. That put them into the playoffs without worrying about anybody else. "Would we have done it without him?" Colts interim coach Bruce Arians asked. "No." Luck broke Newtons record of 4,051 yards passing in the second quarter. But it was extending his own rookie record for fourth-quarter comebacks to seven was more important. The Chiefs had rallied behind Jamaal Charles 226 yards rushing to tie the game 13-13 heading into the fourth quarter. The Colts defence stuffed quarterback Brady Quinn on fourth-and-inches to give Luck a chance. Thats all he needed. After a miserable stretch in which he connected on 1 of 13 passes, the fabulous freshman calmly led Indianapolis (10-5) downfield. He completed a key pass to T.Y. Hilton on third down and made two nice throws to Wayne before hitting the veteran in the back of the end zone. "We had so many opportunities all game, especially on third down, that we squandered," Wayne said. "We wanted to get that done. That was the opportune time to do it." Darius Butler returned an interception 32 yards for the Colts other touchdown, helping them join the 2008 Miami Dolphins as the only teams to win at least 10 games after losing 14 or more the previous season. Most of those wins have come under Arians, who has filled in admirably while Chuck Pagano underwent treatment for leukemia. Pagano is expected to rejoin the Colts this week. "Mission accomplished. Thats all I can say," Arians said. "Without getting emotional again, knowing that (Pagano) is going to be back Monday, the work week shouldnt be as stressful." Charles big day included an 86-yard touchdown run on the first play as his second 200-yard game of the season, and came one week after he managed 10 yards on nine carries against Oakland. "It was fun today, competing out there and doing it while we were trying to come back," Charles said. "It was fun going out tthere and putting out a performance like that.dddddddddddd" Charles joined the Titans Chris Johnson and former Lions great Barry Sanders as the only players with three runs of 80 or more yards in a season. His third career 200-yard game also set a franchise record, which he had shared with Larry Johnson. Peyton Hillis added 101 yards on the ground for the Chiefs (2-13), who had 352 yards rushing in a losing effort -- the first time thats happened in NFL history. A big reason why was Quinn, who was just 10 of 22 for 162 yards with two interceptions. "This game was without a doubt, 100 per cent on my shoulders," he said. "You cant play the way I played today and win a football game." His trouble began with the Chiefs fifth offensive play, when he threw woefully behind Dexter McCluster -- who wasnt even looking for the ball. Butler picked off the pass in stride, taking it untouched to the end zone for a 7-0 lead. Kansas City managed a field goal by Ryan Succop, but he missed his next try and the Colts went the other direction to set up the first of Adam Vinatieris two field goals. Charles fumbled in the red zone later in the second quarter, and the Colts moved into Vinatieris range for a 36-yard field goal and a 13-3 halftime lead. Charles electrified a sparse crowd on the first play of the second half. He angled to the left and then found room down the sideline, cutting back toward the middle of the field and winning a foot-race with the Indianapolis defence for an 86-yard touchdown run. The Chiefs were in position to take the lead later in the third quarter, but Quinn was picked off by Vontae Davis in the end zone. The defence forced a three-and-out and Kansas City was driving again before settling for Succops tying 47-yard field goal. The Chiefs got the ball back again late in the fourth quarter, but Quinn was stuffed on a quarterback sneak on fourth-and-inches from the Indianapolis 27. That turned the ball over to Luck, who completed an 11-yard pass to T.Y. Hilton to convert a third down before he and Wayne won it. "At times it looked a little bleak," Arians said. "Guys hung in there, made plays when they had to make them. Offensively we struggled, and then put together a drive, like we have all year." Notes: Chiefs WR Terrance Copper (left knee) and DT Tyson Jackson (left foot) left with injuries. ... Wayne had five catches to become the fifth player in NFL history with four 100-catch seasons. He also became the 14th player to reach 13,000 yards receiving. ' ' '
