Scott Baker Struggles, Twins Lose 10-4

(Sports Network) – Trevor Crowe had a career-high four hits and drove in two runs, as the Cleveland Indians remained hot with a 10-4 victory over the Minnesota Twins in the opener of a three-game series at Target Field.

Jayson Nix went 3-for-6 with two RBI for the Indians, who matched a season high with their fifth consecutive win, having swept Detroit in four games in their previous series.

Cleveland recorded a season-high 20 hits to support an effective start by Aaron Laffey (2-3). He threw only 58 of his 100 pitches for strikes and lasted five innings, but limited the Twins to an unearned run on five hits and four walks.

Scott Baker (7-9) gave up six runs on 10 hits and three walks in 4 2/3 innings and took the loss, which snapped Minnesota’s three-game win streak.
