INDIANS 4, TWINS 1
Shane Bieber pitched one-run ball into the sixth inning in his first major league win, helping Cleveland beat Minnesota.
Bieber (1-0) scattered 10 hits and struck out seven in 5 2/3 innings in his second career start. The rookie right-hander was recalled from Triple-A Columbus earlier in the day when Carlos Carrasco went on the 10-day disabled list with a bruised right elbow.
Yan Gomes’ three-run double in the third snapped a 1-all tie. Cody Allen, the Indians’ third reliever, pitched the ninth for his 14th save.
Cleveland salvaged the finale of the three-game series and broke a five-game losing streak against Minnesota.
Twins right-hander Jake Odorizzi (3-4) allowed four runs in five innings.
