Kepler's homer sparks Twins in DH split with Indians

Indians eye Friday return for Miller Preview: Indians at Twins
Kenny Thornton | 18 August, 2017, 06:28

The victory, which came courtesy of a Max Kepler home run in the seventh inning, gave the Twins a split of the day-night doubleheader, and kept them a half-dozen games behind Cleveland in an admittedly long, uphill climb to a division title.

Enns, who was acquired from the Yankees earlier this summer in the Jaime Garcia trade, made two appearances for the Twins with one start.

The Twins struck out 19 times in the game to set a new record for a single game.

Right-hander Ryan Merritt, the 26th player for the Indians who was summoned from Triple-A Columbus to start, hung in there until the fourth as the Twins built up their total of 13 men left on base.

Jay Bruce had a two-run single in the first inning for Cleveland, which has won six games in a row and is 9-0 at Minnesota's Target Field this season.

Gomes provided a big insurance blast with a three-run homer in the eighth after the Twins closed within a run.

The first-time All-Star has 18 home runs and 58 RBIs this season for the first-place Indians.

Gibson fell one out shy of getting through five innings at Detroit in his last outing, giving up three runs on five hits while striking out six in a no-decision.

"We'll take it because that had a chance to be a complete bullpen game", manager Terry Francona said.

Ramirez was hit in the right forearm by a 93.1 miles per hour pitch from Kyle Gibson in the top of the second inning.

Glen Perkins has joined the Twins, and it appears he'll be activated off the DL sometime soon.

Miami Marlins right fielder Giancarlo Stanton looks on as he hits a solo home run during the third inning of a baseball game against the San Francisco Giants, Tuesday, Aug. 15, 2017 in Miami.

Indians right-hander Carlos Carrasco (11-5, 3.83 ERA) was scheduled to face Twins right-hander Kyle Gibson (6-9, 6-2) in the middle game of the three-game series before the rainout. "But I'm fine, thank God", Ramirez said through a translator.

Minnesota left the bases loaded in the second inning. Perkins, who had surgery to fix a torn labrum in his throwing shoulder previous year, pitched in the ninth inning for his first appearance in the majors since April 10, 2016, a span of 273 games.
