Sanó Continues To Sizzle, Twins Open Cleveland Series With Win

CLEVELAND (AP) – Miguel Sanó hit a two-run homer and Nelson Cruz connected for a solo shot to lead the injury-riddled Minnesota Twins to a 3-2 win over the Cleveland Indians in the opener of a three-game series between the AL Central’s top teams.

Sanó homered in the sixth inning off Aaron Civale (3-3) as the Twins hit the halfway point of this 60-game season in first – just where they ended 2019. Minnesota stopped Cleveland’s three-year reign atop the division last year. The Twins, who have several regulars and two starting pitchers on the injured list, lead the Indians by 2 1/2 games.

Twins continue their series at Cleveland tonight.  6:05 p.m. first pitch on 950 KWAT.
