Twins Vs. Indians: Minnesota Falls To Tribe, 5-0

Coming off of a heartbreaking effort on Monday night, many hoped that the Minnesota Twins could build off their failed comeback attempt to pull out a series split on Tuesday afternoon against the American League Central Division's best team, the Cleveland Indians.

Unfortunately, all the Twins did was fail.

The team was completely dominated by the Tribe's starting pitcher, Derek Lowe who pitched a complete game shutout without striking out a single batter. He allowed only six hits and walked four.

The wheels officially fell off in the fifth inning when the Indians managed to hit three homeruns in the frame, including back-to-back homeruns by Asdrubal Cabrera and Carlos Santana, which brought the score to 5-0. That's where it ultimately remaining as the final score proved to be the same.

Twins starting pitcher Jason Marquis pitched five innings and was tagged with five earned runs on nine hits. His record now falls to 2-3 on the season.

Minnesota will open another two-game set against a Central Division rival on Wednesday as they travel to Detroit to take on the Tigers.
