MLB roundup: Indians top Minnesota

Carlos Santana and Asdrubal Cabrera both had two doubles and Jason Kipnis was a homer short of the cycle as the Cleveland Indians had 17 hits in a 12-6 victory over the Twins Friday night in Minneapolis.

With the win and Tampa Bay’s loss at Toronto, the Indians moved into a tie with the Rays for the two AL wild cards, one game ahead of Texas, which beat Los Angeles. Cleveland has won eight straight and 13 of 15, taking advantage of a schedule that ends with 10 games against the Astros, the White Sox, and Twins, the three worst teams in the AL this season.
