Cleveland Indians Even Series With Minnesota Twins

One win was all the Minnesota Twins wanted, I guess. After winning on Monday, the Twins fell and fell big on Tuesday night against the Cleveland Indians. Yohan Pino got the start for the Twins and gave up four runs, but the Twins couldn’t pick up their pitcher by only scoring two runs in the contest.

Pino gave up three of his runs in the second inning, the first two via a Daniel Murphy RBI single and the third via a Mike Aviles sac fly. The only other run Pino allowed was a solo homer to Carlos Santana in the fifth.

As mentioned before, the Twins offense was pretty pitiful. The Twins scored a run on a grounder’s choice by Sam Fuld in the fourth and another on a solo shot from Brian Dozier in the seventh.

The game was still in hand for Minnesota until Matt Guerrier’s appearance in the ninth inning. Starting the ninth it was a 4-2 game, by the time Guerrier and the Twins got out of the inning it was 8-2.

Dozier was the only Twin to register multiple hits, the second baseman went 3-for-5. Carlos Santana was the star of the game for the Indians going 4-for-5 with two RBI.
