Cabrera, Brantley Lead Indians Past Twins 9-4

CLEVELAND (AP) – Asdrubal Cabrera had four hits and three RBIs, Michael Brantley also homered and the Cleveland Indians beat the injury-riddled Minnesota Twins 9-4 Thursday for their first three-game winning streak this season.

Cabrera, who entered hitting .215, had a solo homer in the second innings and RBI doubles in the seventh and eighth. He also singled in the fifth.

Brantley hit a two-run homer in the fifth and had an RBI grounder in the sixth. He also doubled and scored in the first, then singled in the third.

Justin Masterson (2-1) allowed four runs – two earned – four hits and four walks in 6 1-3 innings. Kevin Corriea (1-4) gave up four runs, eight hits and four walks in 4 1-3 innings for the Twins.

Minnesota played their fourth straight game without first baseman Joe Mauer, who could be headed to the disabled list because of back spasms. Outfielder Sam Fuld was placed on the seven-day DL with concussion-like symptoms, leaving infielder Pedro Florimon as Minnesota’s only bench player when the game began.
