The Cleveland Indians complete the sweep of the traditional double header over the Minnesota Twins with a 2-0 victory. 

Unlike the first game, this one did not have as many runs. 

T.J. House took the mound for the Tribe, seeking his third win.

The Twins sent out Ricky Nolasco.

When it comes to scoring, Carlos Santana's solo homerun was all the offense the Indians pitching needed to complete the sweep. 

Santana added an insurance run in the 8th with a single to left, scoring Michael Bourn.

Tribe wins 2-0.

Both Pitchers pitched great today, House going 7.0 innings, giving up only 4 hits with 8 strikeouts. Nolasco only gave up 4 hits, but 1 of those was a homerun. 

The Indians improve to 76-69, the Twins fall to 62-83.

The Indians move to 4.5 behind the first place Kansas City Royals, and 3.5 game back in the Wild Card race.

W: T. House (3-3)

L: R. Nolasco (5-11)
