Indians humble Twins with two wins at Target Field

MINNEAPOLIS (KTTC/AP) -- Lou Marson hit a tiebreaking solo homer in the seventh inning and the Cleveland Indians completed a doubleheader sweep with a 6-3 victory over the Minnesota Twins on Monday night, kicking off the important four-game series with a pair of victories at sweltering Target Field.

Marson also doubled and scored in the fifth against Scott Diamond, who turned in a decent major league debut for the Twins but took the defeat. Fausto Carmona (5-10) came off the disabled list and won for only the second time in his last 12 starts, beating the heat to finish six innings with two runs allowed.

Asdrubal Cabrera hit a three-run homer to lift the Indians to a 5-2 win in the matinee and added an RBI single in the nightcap.
