Michael Young had Philadelphia's other RBI in the third.

NOTES: An MRI on Monday revealed a medical meniscus tear in Erik Kratz's left knee, an injury that requires surgery and could knock out the Phillies' catcher for the rest of the season.

Relievers Jared Burton (groin) and Ryan Pressly (shoulder) were unavailable for the Twins. Both are day to day. ... Revere on the Twins trading him: "They gave me a chance to be a major league player, and I just thank them every day for that." ... Willingham played in his 1,000th game, becoming the 93rd active player to do so. ... Mike Pelfrey (3-6, 6.40 ERA) starts for the Twins on Tuesday. Coming off Tommy John surgery, the right-hander has only managed to complete six innings or more in three of his 12 starts this season. ... Coming off a start where he shut out the Brewers over 6 2-3 innings, Tyler Cloyd (2-2, 3.68) takes the mound for Philadelphia on Tuesday.
