The Twins also got home runs from Joe Mauer and Eddie Rosario, and Jorge Polanco had a pair of triples en route to a 12-5 win over the Indians.
Rookie pitcher Jose Berrios gave up 3 runs in the first inning before settling in and looking like the prized prospect he is. The right-hander went six innings with 5 strikeouts and no walks for the win.
