MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Rookie T.J. House threw shutout ball into the sixth inning, combining with four relievers to pitch the Cleveland Indians past the Minnesota Twins 5-0 Wednesday night.
Rookie Zach Walters hit his sixth homer. It was his third home run in eight games with the Indians since he was acquired from Washington on July 31 in a trade for shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera.
House gave up four hits while striking out five and walked three. The Indians extended Minnesota’s scoreless streak to 17 innings.
Ricky Nolasco gave up four runs in 6 2-3 innings.
