Twins complete three-game sweep of Indians

Twins 4, Indians 0: Tribe swept out of first place by Minnesota

(AP Photo/Tony Dejak). Cleveland Indians starting pitcher Trevor Bauer delivers in the first inning of the team's baseball game against the Minnesota Twins, Friday, June 23, 2017, in Cleveland. The Twins and Indians have been gracious hosts so far this year.

"We talked about how we got embarrassed at home", Twins second baseman Brian Dozier said Sunday after their 4-0 win at Progressive Field.

Santana (10-4) gave up nine hits, but Cleveland's lineup struggled again. In the three-game series, the Indians were 1-for-23 with runners in scoring position.

The Royals won for the 11th time in 13 games and moved over.500 for the first time this season at 37-36.

"Now I can say it, we wanted to stick it to them", Dozier said.

The Angels look for their fifth series win in their last six on Sunday. "We wanted to stomp on their throats, so to speak, while they are down".

On the heels of a disappointing sweep, the Indians continue the homestand with a four-game series against Texas that begins tonight.

"That was a really fun series", Twins manager Paul Molitor said. I'll take the Indians for the win, but the safe play here seems to be the over. "They played their butts off".

Gimenez served three stints on the Indians roster, slashing.180/.264/.290 (.554 OPS) with 11 doubles, eight home runs and 26 RBIs in 149 games (317 at-bats) between 2009, 2010, 2014 and 2016. Max Kepler doubled and eventually scored on Eddie Rosario's infield hit.

Gerrymandering gave GOP 1 extra legislative seat
Democratic House Minority Leader David Toscano said the reason why more Democrats are running this year is obvious. Republicans controlled both MI legislative chambers and the governor's office when the maps were redrawn in 2011.

The 34-year-old veteran has allowed four runs on seven hits in five innings of work, giving him a 7.20 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and.318 opposing batting average in 2017. But the road Twins (23-9 vs. 16-25 at home) preformed like they have all season. In his last start against the Indians on May 12 in Cleveland, Santana pitched seven innings and combined with three relievers on a two-hit 1-0 shutout.

"We're a pretty streaky team", Cleveland manager Terry Francona said. "It was a huge, huge game today, going into Boston, and we were able to sweep here and get back in first place where we belong". Jose Bautista drove in a season-high four runs, and Francisco Liriano earned his 100th career victory.

CHICAGO (AP) - Matt Olson hit his first two major league home runs, Jaycob Brugman and Franklin Barreto also launched their first career shots and the Oakland Athletics routed the Chicago White Sox. Kluber is coming off a complete-game shutout of the Orioles earlier this week. "If you make your right pitch in the right location, if they hit it, good for them".

MIAMI - Right-hander Edinson Volquez maintained his ideal record against Chicago as Miami defeated the defending World Series champion Cubs.

The Dodgers trailed 6-4 but had the bases loaded when Ottavino (1-2) threw a hard cutter past catcher Tony Wolters, allowing a run to score.

Chicago also lost shortstop Addison Russell, who departed in the fourth inning. They were still trying to go over slot for at least one more pick after the 10th round, where $125,000 is the new top allowable bonus without counting against the bonus pool.

After all, he hit a longer homer earlier this season. The over/under total for the game has been set at 9.5 runs.

Minnesota, which the Indians swept to take over first place in the Central Division last weekend at Target Field, returned the favor to take a half-game lead in the standings.

CARDINALS 8, PIRATES 4 - Randal Grichuk homered in his return to the majors, Yadier Molina had three hits and the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Pittsburgh Pirates. In the third inning, they had a runner at second and two outs and failed to score.
