Santana Hits 25th Homer as Indians Beat Twins 10-4
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – Carlos Santana hit his 25th home run and Jeanmar Gomez pitched effectively into the seventh inning before leaving with an injury Saturday as the Cleveland Indians beat the Minnesota Twins 10-4.
Gomez (4-2) won his fourth straight start since being recalled from Triple-A Columbus on Aug. 30. He allowed two runs and seven hits over 6 2-3 innings, sending the Twins to their seventh straight loss.
Gomez was one out away from getting out of the seventh when he appeared to injure his leg trying to make a play on Ben Revere’s bouncer up the middle. Gomez walked off the field unassisted and was relieved by Josh Judy.
