(Minneapolis, MN) -- Dallas Keuchel turned back the clock as the Twins shut out the Pittsburgh Pirates 2-0 at Target Field.

Keuchel retired the first 19 batters that he faced before Bryan Reynolds broke up his bid for a perfect game with a one-out double in the seventh.  Keuchel earned his first win after giving up just one hit in six-and-a-third scoreless innings, and Jhoan Duran picked up his 23rd save. Edouard Julien drove in both of Minnesota's runs in the victory.

The Twins extended their AL Central lead over Cleveland to six games at 65-60. Minnesota visits Milwaukee tomorrow night.
