TWINS 3, INDIANS 1
Mitch Garver hit his first home run of the season and Minnesota used its bullpen to string together a two-hitter, taking the four-game series from its primary division competitor.
Max Kepler doubled and scored in each of his first two at-bats, and Jorge Polanco and Nelson Cruz drove him in with singles in the first and third. Garver, who had a career-high 31 homers in 2019, went deep in the second as the Twins built a 3-0 lead against Aaron Civale (1-1).
The defending AL Central champions allowed four runs in the four-game set against the Indians, winning three of them to raise their record to 7-2.
Devin Smeltzer (1-0) worked 2 2/3 innings for the win.
