Home runs, strong pitching lead Indians to 7-2 win

Posted: Updated:

Carlos Santana and Jason Kipnis hit two-run homers, Zach McAllister won his third straight start and the Cleveland Indians defeated the Minnesota Twins 7-2 on Saturday night.

The win moved the Indians into third place in the crowded American League wild card race.

Santana's two-run homer in the first got the Indians off to a quick start. Kipnis, who snapped an 0 for 19 skid with a first-inning single, homered in the third. Both home runs came off starter Liam Hendriks (0-2), who has lost 12 of his 13 career decisions.

McAllister (7-7) allowed two runs in 7 1-3 innings. Brian Dozier homered in the eighth and hit a sacrifice fly in the third for Minnesota's only success against the right-hander, who has given up four earned runs in 19 2-3 innings in his winning streak.
