MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Samuel Deduno dominated for seven innings, Trevor Plouffe homered and had four RBIs, and the Minnesota Twins beat the Seattle Mariners 10-0 on Wednesday night.
 
The normally wild Deduno (5-2) struck out a career-high nine with no walks to help the win for just the fourth time in their last 20 games.
 
After Trayvon Robinson singled with one out in the first inning, Deduno retired the next 18 Seattle hitters, all but one on groundballs or strikeouts.
 
Plouffe gave the Twins a 5-0 lead in the fourth with his 20th home run and first since returning on Aug. 13 after missing 21 games with a sore thumb.
 
Jason Vargas (13-9) failed to finish five innings for his second straight start. He allowed six runs on eight hits over 4 2-3 innings.
