Brian Duensing pitched a three-hitter for his
first career complete game, outdueling Trevor Cahill and leading
the Minnesota Twins past the Oakland Athletics 2-0 on Saturday
night.

Cahill (12-5) matched a modern major league record with his 20th
straight start of five innings or more and allowing six hits or
fewer. Nolan Ryan did the same in 1972-73 for the California
Angels.

Cahill surrendered just one run on six hits and a walk in seven
innings. He struck out five.

Duensing was a step ahead of him, though, breezing through the
light-hitting A's lineup with the help of two double plays in the
first three innings. He also got a pickoff at second base of Rajai
Davis right after the speedy outfielder had stolen his 36th base.
