The Cleveland Indians host the Minnesota Twins in a double header, and win with ease in game 1.

The Tribe acted quick with a Carlos Santana 2-homerun to right. 

Yan Gomes added another in the 2nd with a homerun to left. Tribe up 3-1.

The 3rd inning is when the Indians tagged Gibson for 4 more runs giving them a 7-1 lead. Michael Brantley scored one run on a single to right, Gomes doubled and scored two, and Chisenhall hit a sacrifice fly to center with Jason Kipnis scoring.

In the 6th Michael Brantley added another RBI with a single to right. Indians up 8-1.

Top 9- The Twins get to Kluber by knocking in 1 run, which ended Klubers night. Kluber finished pitching 8.1 innings, 8H, 2ER, 7KO's.

Tribe improve to 75-69 on the season, Twins fall to 62-83 on the year.
