CLEVELAND — Faced with a rugged road trip against streaking teams, the Minnesota Twins needed something positive to happen. A strong outing by Mike Pelfrey and just enough clutch hitting did the trick in Sunday’s 4-2 victory over Cleveland that stopped the Indians’ six-game winning string. Minnesota, which is on a 10-game swing, lost two of three in Detroit and dropped the first two games against the Indians.
