Torii Hunter and Jason Bartlett also homered for the Twins.
It was the first inside-the-park home run for a Twins player since Hunter did it in 2001. The previous major league catcher to hit an inside-the-park shot was Kelly Stinnett with Arizona in 2005, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.
Pat Neshek got one out for the win after a strong start by Boof Bonser. Neshek is 5-and-1. Joe Nathan pitched the ninth for his 20th save in 22 tries.
