Tim Hudson(3-6) and Dick Ellsworth(3-5) locked horns in a pitcher's duel with Hudson and the Minnesota Milquetoast coming out on top of the Cleveland Spiders 2 to 1.

In the top of the 5th inning Minnesota scored 2 runs. Hudson led off and started the attack as he lined a base-hit. After an out was recorded, Robinson Cano came up and he bombed a two-run dinger (his 7th of the season). Cleveland had a chance in the 9th but they came up short.

John Smoltz got the save, his 7th. Despite losing Stu was optimistic after the game. 'We'll get over this one. Sometimes the breaks fall your way, sometimes they don't. Any one of a dozen little things go different, and we come out on top.'
