Brian Dozier hit a tie-breaking solo shot in the eighth inning to lead his team to a 4-2 win over the Indians on Saturday.

He went yard off reliever Cody Allen to bust a 2-2 tie. It was his only knock of the game although he did score another run earlier in the contest. Dozier has little chance of repeating his 42-homer outburst from a year ago but he has been a stalwart fantasy second-sacker this year anyway. He has a .254 batting average with 13 homers, 36 runs, 35 RBI and 10 stolen bases.

Joe Mauer went 2-for-2 with two walks and a run scored against the Indians on Saturday.

He walked and scored on a throwing error in the first inning. Mauer's days as a stud fantasy catcher are obviously in the rearview mirror and he is barely usable as a first baseman or designated hitter. He has a decent .282/.356/.397 slash line with only four home runs and 29 RBI in 261 plate appearances.

Kyle Gibson gave up one run in 4 2/3 innings but did not earn a decision as his club beat the Indians on Saturday.

He surrendered four hits and four walks while fanning just one batter. He walked two batters in the fifth inning and was pulled for a reliever after having thrown 93 pitches in the short start. The only run he allowed came on a solo homer by third baseman Jose Ramirez in the fourth inning. This will go down as one of his best outings of the season, which isn't saying much considering he has a 6.23 ERA after 13 starts.

Cody Allen gave up a home run to Brian Dozier in the eighth inning and was charged with a loss to the Twins on Saturday.

Allen was recently removed from his closer role so that he could be used in high-leverage situations earlier in the game while Andrew Miller conserves some innings. Allen was brought in to pitch the eighth inning of a tie game today and served up the longball. He falls to 0-3 with a 2.25 ERA and 37 strikeouts in 28 innings. He has blown only one of his 16 save chances but will seemingly not get many more for a least the next few weeks.

Jose Ramirez roped a solo home run and finished the game 1-for-4 versus the Twins on Saturday.

He took starter Kyle Gibson over the wall in right field in the fourth inning. It was his 12th homer of the season. He has a .319 batting average with 48 runs, 35 RBI and seven stolen bases after 72 games.

Corey Kluber punched out 13 batters and allowed two runs -- both unearned -- in seven innings and did not earn a decision as his club lost to the Twins on Saturday.

Second baseman Jason Kipnis made a throwing error on the first batter of the game that led to two unearned runs scoring in the first inning. Kluber didn't let it bother him and proceeded to dominate the game. He surrendered just three base hits and two walks. Unfortunately his teammates couldn't help him out with much run support. This was the third game in a row and fifth time in his 11 starts this season that Kluber has notched double-figure strikeouts in a game. His record holds at 6-2 with a 3.24 ERA. He has 93 punchouts and 19 walks in 72 1/3 innings.

Tyler Skaggs (oblique) will begin a minor league rehab assignment in the Arizona League on Saturday.

So far it's taken Skaggs almost two months to recover from a strained oblique. The Angels are targeting the All-Star break for his return.

Mike Trout (thumb) has begun hitting off a tee.

Trout is still working his way back from thumb surgery. He's hoping to return for the All-Star Game on July 11, but the Angels might not be comfortable with that. The Halos have fared surprisingly well in his absence with Cameron Maybin playing like a legitimate All-Star in center field.
