MINNEAPOLIS, Aug. 26 (UPI) -- Jeremy Guthrie cooled off Minnesota by allowing a run on six hits in seven innings Wednesday in Baltimore's 5-1 victory over the Twins.

Minnesota had a five-game winning streak halted and dropped a game below 500, but stayed within 4 1/2 games of division-leading Detroit in the American League Central.

Guthrie (9-12) won his second straight start, striking out five without walking a batter.

Baltimore scored twice in the first, once on a throwing error by shortstop Orlando Cabrera, and Felix Pie added a solo homer in the fifth.

Chad Moeller drove in Baltimore's final two runs with a double in the sixth and a bases-loaded walk in the eighth.

Losing pitcher Nick Blackburn (8-9) gave up four runs on nine hits in 5 2/3.
