INDIANS NOTES:

  • ·    The Indians defeated the Twins tonight to pull ahead in the season series 6-5…Cleveland is 13-12 since the All-Star Break and is just 2-7 in their last nine games…Cleveland is 28-25 against the AL Central this season…the Indians have scored five runs or more in just three of their last 12 games…the Indians are now 5-8 in the month of August.
  • ·    Zach McAllister allowed two runs, one earned, on four hits and one walk while striking out seven in 6.0 innings tonight…the seven strikeouts tied his season-high, done two other times (August 3 at Miami and April 18 vs. Boston)…he has 17 strikeouts in his last three starts (13.2 IP)…with the win, he is now 5-7 on the season, and has earned his first win since May 23 at Boston, a span of six starts without a win.
  • ·    Jason Kipnis (1-for-4) has a hit in nine of his 11 games against the Twins this season, batting .429 (18-for-42) with three doubles, three triples and three home runs with 18 RBI in those 11 games…over his five games at Target Field this season is hitting .333 (6-for-18) with two home runs and six RBI.
  • ·    Michael Brantley (1-for-4) has a hit in eight of his last nine games, since August 4…over the nine games he is hitting .314 (11-for-35) with three doubles, a home run and three RBI.
  • ·    Ryan Raburn (1-for-3) hit his 14th home run of the season with a two-run shot off Deduno in the sixth inning…the 14 homers are the most since 2011 when he also hit 14…his career high is 16 in 2009…nine of his last 14 hits are for extra-bases (four doubles, five home runs)…since June 28 is hitting .302 (19-for-63) with six home runs and 19 RBI in 23 games.
  • ·    Yan Gomes (2-for-4) has at least one hit in 12 of his last 13 games, batting .500 (21-for-42) with eight multi-hit games, two home runs and eight RBI over that span…tonight marked his 15th multi-hit game of the season.
  • ·    Nick Swisher (0-for-4) is hitting .088 (3-for-34) with one home run in his eight games against the Twins this season…he is hitting .164 (10-for-61) in 15 career games at Target Field.

 

TWINS NOTES: ­

  • ·    The Twins fell to 5-6 against Cleveland this season…Minnesota is now 23-29 against AL Central opponents…despite the loss the Twins are 4-2 in their last six games and 4-1 in their last five games at Target Field…Willingham hit a home run tonight to extend the Twins streak of games with at least one home run to six…in those six games the Twins have hit 14 home runs…the Willingham homer extended the streak of runs scored solely on homers for the Twins to 23, a mark that set an MLB record…the streak was snapped when Joe Mauer scored on a Michael Bourn error in the sixth inning off a Justin Morneau single.
  • ·    Samuel Deduno allowed five runs, four earned, on five hits and three walks while striking out four in 6.0 innings…it was his second straight outing allowing at least four runs…20 of his 30 career starts have been at least 6.0 innings…he is winless in three straight starts (0-2 and a no decision) after winning his previous three starts…he is now 3-2, 3.00 ERA (39.0 IP, 13 ER) in his six starts at Target Field this season.
  • ·    Brian Dozier (0-for-4) snapped his seven-game hit-streak going 0-for-4…he hit .379 (11-for-29) with three home runs and eight RBI in the seven games.
  • ·    Josh Willingham (1-for-4) hit his 12th home run of the season with a solo shot in the second inning off McAllister…it was his second home run in six games since being reinstated from the disabled list prior to the doubleheader on August 9 at Chicago-AL…his 12 homers are now tied with Dozier for second most on the Twins, behind Morneau’s 14…all three of his hits since coming off the DL are for extra-bases (double, two home runs)…he has hit three career home runs off Zach McAllister, tied for the most against any opposing pitcher (also Oliver Perez, Colby Lewis, Derek Lowe and Cole Hamels)…he now has a career average of .714 (5-for-7) against McAllister.
  • ·    Clete Thomas (1-for-3) has reached base safely in 42 of his last 48 starts, since June 14…he also has at least one hit in 12 of his last 18 games.
  • ·    Anthony Swarzak tossed 2.0 scoreless innings tonight…he now has 74.0 innings of relief this season, the most by a Twins reliever since Guerrier tossed 76.1 innings in 2009…he tossed 73.1 innings of relief in 2012.
  • ·    Oswaldo Arcia (1-for-3) has at least one hit in 10 of his 12 games since being recalled August 2…in those 12 games he is hitting .298 (14-for-47) with four home runs, three doubles, a triple and five RBI.
