Ervin Santana goes six scoreless innings in Twins' Sunday win

Cleveland Indians receive boost from potent offense

MIAMI - Right-hander Edinson Volquez maintained his ideal record against Chicago as Miami defeated the defending World Series champion Cubs. Dozier turned on the pitch and drove it to the Home Run Porch in left field, delivering the decisive blow and giving the Indians their second straight loss.

So far this season he has made 23 appearances at catcher, six as an emergency pitcher, four at first base and one at third base. And the Indians totaled two runs. Max Kepler doubled and eventually scored on Eddie Rosario's infield hit.

Bellinger got in on the multi-home run action with two blasts in a win over the Rockies.

4th: Runners on first and third base with one out.

MARLINS 4, CUBS 2 - Chicago Cubs manager Joe Maddon says this season is like learning to swim, with his team hoping to tread water until several key players return from the disabled list.

Atlanta starter Julio Teheran (6-6) continued to struggle at home. Tomlin was 1-1 with a 2.57 ERA in the first two starts. Rickard scored on a sacrifice fly by Adam Jones. It was also his 12th straight home start with at least seven strikeouts, a team record. The bullpen also gave up just a run over 11 innings. He was recently waived by the Angels after three minor league outings and the Red Sox claimed him off waivers on Friday.

Minnesota's first two runs both came in the first inning. Juan Graterol contributed a two-run single for Los Angeles. Rosales and Joyce broke it open with their drives against David Robertson and Chris Beck to start the ninth, and Oakland completed the three-game sweep after getting dominated by Derek Holland. We didn't just want to win the series, we wanted to sweep.

Cleveland Indians manager Terry Francona has spoken at times this season about his team not making the same plays that allowed them to be in a championship position, similar to "50-50 balls" in basketball.

Erik Gonzalez, who struck out to end the second, whiffed again for the second out and Francisco Lindor lined out to left. He pitched 6 scoreless innings, and got out of a threat unscathed in every inning from the 2nd through the 6th.

Bautista homered with Ryan Goins aboard in the fifth to tie the score at 2.

Jose Alvarado (0-3) walked the only batter he faced, Seth Smith, leading off the seventh. "At times I thought, 'If this hitter gets a hit, this run comes in.' But I try not to think that way and try to not let a hitter get to first base". Relievers Donnie Hart and Mychal Givens combined to keep the Rays scoreless over the final two innings.

It was Bauer's fourth start against Minnesota this year. Gomes tried to pick off Mauer at third but his throw went into left field for the second unearned run.

They were quiet until the seventh, when Dozier chased Bauer with an RBI single to right.

The victory snapped an eight-game losing streak for the Tigers and halted a three-game winning streak for the Padres. Right-hander Bruce Rondon (1-1) was credited with the win, with Justin Wilson earning his sixth save.

Why are the Twins so much worse when they play at home?

The Twins are 22-9 on the road, the second-best road record in the majors. He gave up two singles then committed an error on Jason Kipnis' comebacker to load the bases with one out. Descalso hit the first pitch he saw to right field for the D-backs' fourth walk-off victory of the season.

The Royals won for the 11th time in 13 games and moved over.500 for the first time this season at 37-36. Philadelphia has lost 15 of 18.
