MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Milwaukee scored three runs on two misjudged balls in the outfield by Chris Heisey, and Wily Peralta pitched seven strong innings in the Brewers' 5-2 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Monday night.
Ryan Braun hit a two-run double in the third on which Heisey took a couple of steps in before retreating as the high liner went over his head. The four-year veteran with 134 career starts in left field apparently lost Carlos Gomez's high fly ball to the warning track in the fourth inning that turned into an RBI ground-rule double that made it 4-0.
Peralta (11-6) allowed three hits, including Billy Hamilton's solo homer. Francisco Rodriguez threw a 1-2-3 ninth for his 29th save.
Cincinnati's Mat Latos (2-2) gave up four earned runs and eight hits in seven innings.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Josh Willingham's tiebreaking home run in the eighth inning sent the Minnesota Twins to a 4-3 victory over the Cleveland Indians on Monday night.
Kurt Suzuki had a two-run double among his three hits, Trevor Plouffe hit an RBI double and the Twins beat the Indians at home for the first time in more than 11 months.
Suzuki, a first-time All-Star selection who was the catcher for the ninth inning of the American League's victory here at Target Field last week, posted his ninth three-hit game this season. He raised his batting average to .311 and is 25 for 63 in his last 17 games.
In another All-Star game reprise, Glen Perkins pitched a perfect ninth for his 23rd save in 26 chances.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Cleveland Indians shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera left Monday night's game with the Minnesota Twins because of lower back spasms.
Cabrera played two innings before being taken out. There was no word from the team on exactly how he was injured.
Chris Dickerson pinch hit for Cabrera in the top of the third and hit an RBI single. He went to center field in the bottom of the inning with Mike Aviles shifting to shortstop. Cabrera struck out in his only at-bat against Twins starter Kris Johnson.
The 28-year-old Cabrera has played in 94 of 99 games this season.
CINCINNATI (AP) -- Standout defensive tackle Geno Atkins and starting cornerback Leon Hall are among nine players placed on the physically unable to perform list Monday by the Cincinnati Bengals.
Atkins missed seven games and the Bengals' one playoff game last season after undergoing surgery on his right knee. He was an All-Pro in 2012 and has made two Pro Bowls.
Atkins and Hall, who started only five times last season before tearing his Achilles tendon, are eligible to come off that list anytime during the preseason. They count against the team's 90-man roster limit.
Punter Kevin Huber also was placed on PUP, along with guard Clint Boling, linebacker Marquis Flowers, receivers Ryan Whalen and Colin Lockett, defensive tackles Devon Still and Zach Minter.

UNDATED (AP) -- Baseball could have two 13-game winners by the end of the night. In St. Louis this evening, the Cardinals are facing Tampa Bay, which has won its last five games, and toeing the rubber for the Cards is Adam Wainwright. He has won 12 of 16 decisions this season with an amazing 1.83 earned run average. Tonight's start is Wainwright's first since starting the All-Star game last Tuesday in Minneapolis. The Cardinals are percentage points back of Milwaukee for first-place in the National League Central with a record of 54-45. The Brewers are home this evening to Cincinnati.
The other 12-game winner in action tonight is Detroit's Rick Porcello. He is 12-5 with a 3.39 ERA and tonight is facing the Diamondbacks in Arizona. The 54-41 Tigers top the American League Central by 6 1/2 games over Cleveland.
Along with the Rays the Red Sox have won five straight as well and tonight they are playing the Jays in Toronto. The longest current losing streak is six as held by Colorado. The Rockies will attempt to snap the skid with a home game against Washington.
