Duffey, Rosario Lead Twins to 5-1 Win Over Indians
CLEVELAND (AP) — Tyler Duffey pitched seven scoreless innings, Eddie Rosario drove in three runs and the Minnesota Twins won their first road series of the season with a 5-1 victory over the Cleveland Indians on Sunday.
Duffey (1-2) allowed six hits and struck out six, giving the Twins back-to-back wins for only the third time this year. Minnesota (10-26) broke an eight-game losing streak Saturday and has won four of six against Cleveland this season.
Rosario's RBI single in the second gave Minnesota the lead. He added a two-run double in the ninth.
Jorge Polanco hit his first major league home run in the seventh, one day after Juan Centeno hit his first big league homer.
Centeno had an RBI double in the second for Minnesota, which hadn't won a road series since Sept. 28 to Oct. 1 last season in Cleveland.
