Indians Vs. Twins Final Score: Cleveland Loses Big, Losing Streak At 10

The Cleveland Indians are in rough shape. After losing 14-3 to the Minnesota Twins at home on Monday night, they have lost 10 straight games.

It was all but over after the second inning, as starter Zach McAllister surrendered back-to-back home runs to Josh Willingham and Justin Morneau, then gave up five more runs on a single from Ben Revere, a double from Joe Mauer and a single from Morneau. He was replaced by Josh Tomlin, who promptly gave up a three-run homer to Ryan Doumit.

McAllister gave up six hits, nine runs and struck out three in 1 2/3 innings.

In the fourth, Morneau put Cleveland further behind with another home run, a two-run shot. Mauer made it 13-1 with an RBI-double in the sixth.

Carlos Santana's two-run home run made it 13-3 in the sixth, but that's as close as the Indians would get. .Denard Span scored on a fielder's choice in the eighth and that was it.
