Twins beat Indians 3-2

Twins beat Indians 3-2

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Kevin Correia threw six sharp innings for his first win in a month, Joe Mauer and Justin Morneau each had two hits and a walk, and Minnesota beat Cleveland 3-2 on Saturday night for its fourth-straight win.

Correia (7-6) allowed only three hits — one of them a two-run homer by Jason Kipnis — with one walk and three strikeouts.

The Indians entered the day 1 1/2 games behind Detroit in the AL Central and led 2-0 after Kipnis’ homer in the sixth.

Corey Kluber, who had pitched five shutout innings up to that point, left the game with tightness in his left hip, and the Twins pounced on a couple of Cleveland infield miscues to take the lead.

The Indians have lost two straight after heading into the All-Star break with a four-game winning streak.
