Twins Vs. Indians Final Score: Scott Diamond A Gem As Minnesota Wins 11-0

Josh Willingham and Justin Morneau led a hit parade against the Cleveland Indians on Friday night. The heart of the Minnesota Twins lineup combined for two home runs and drove in seven runs on the way to an 11-0 route of the Cleveland Indians.

Morneau went deep in the top of the first inning, putting the Twins up 3-0. Willingham hit a three-run shot in a disastrous fourth inning for pitcher Josh Tomlin. Willingham now has 26 home runs on the season, matching the second-best single season total of his career. His best season for long balls was in 2009 when he hit 29.

Scott Diamond shined on the mound for Minnesota. He held the Indians to three hits in a complete game shutout, striking out six and walking not a single batsman. That was win No. 9 for Minnesota's precious stone.

Round two happens Saturday night at 7:10 p.m. at Target Field.
