Twins Vs. Indians Score Update: Minnesota Scores 10 Runs In 2nd Inning

The Minnesota Twins came into tonight's game at Progressive Field looking for their fourth win in five games and their eighth in 11. Early on, it looks like they're well on their way against the Cleveland Indians. Heading into the fourth inning, the Twins are up 10-1.

After falling down 1-0 when Jason Kipnis scored on a Carlos Santana groundout in the first inning, the Twins scored ten (TEN!) runs in the second.

It started with back to back solo home runs by Josh Willingham and Justin Morneau. Then Ryan Doumit scored on a Kipnis throwing error. After that, Ben Revere had an RBI-single, Joe Mauer had a two-run double and Morneau was back up for an RBI-single. That's when the Indians pulled starter Zach McAllister and replaced him with Josh Tomlin.

Tomlin immediately gave up a three-run home run to Doumit and it was 10-1. He retired the side on three groundouts in the third, however.
