Indians Vs. Twins: Tribe Sweep Two-Game Set With Commanding 5-0 Win

On Tuesday afternoon, the Cleveland Indians completed a two-game set against the Minnesota Twins in commanding fashion. After narrowly escaping Monday night's Game 1 on the back of a Shin-Soo Choo RBI single in the ninth, the Indians dominated both offensively and defensively in a 5-0 rout of the Central Division's worst team on Tuesday.

Cleveland's standout star was by-and-far starting pitcher Derek Lowe who pitched a complete game shutout allowing only six hits and four walks. He is now 6-1 on the season and is tied for the Major League lead in wins on the season.

Choo once again stepped up offensively hitting a solo homerun in the fifth inning, which was one of three hit in the fifth frame including back-to-back homers from Asdrubal Cabrera and Carlos Santana.

The Tribe now improves their record to 20-16 and have a 2.5 games lead in the Central Division.

Cleveland will open a two-game set against the Seattle Mariners on Wednesday.
