CLEVELAND, July 27 (UPI) -- Justin Morneau and Jason Kubel drove in runs in the ninth inning Sunday, enabling the Minnesota Twins to top the Cleveland Indians 4-2.

Morneau doubled in Alexi Casilla, who also had doubled, and then scored on a single by Kubel.

Matt Guerrier (6-4) was the winner in relief for the Twins, who have won two straight contests after dropping five in a row. Joe Nathan pitched a perfect ninth for his 28th save.

Rafael Perez (1-2), victim of the Twins' ninth-inning rally, took the loss.

The Indians got their runs on sacrifice flies by Sal Fasano and David Dellucci.
