Heaney (6-7) earned the win Thursday against the Twins after tossing seven innings of two-run ball, allowing four hits and two walks while fanning seven.

Heaney hadn't pitched more than 5.1 innings in any of his three previous starts, but he bounced back admirably here with his longest outing and sixth quality start of the year. The veteran southpaw owns a 5.40 ERA since the beginning of June, but this performance was clearly a step in the right direction. He's expected to make his next start next week at home against the Rockies.
