Huff Shines, Indians Down Twins 5-2 In Doubleheader Game One

The fans hid in the shade, trying to escape the 108-degree heat index. The Twins' bats went along for the hide, as Indians starter David Huff - making his first major-league start of the year - tossed seven scoreless innings, allowing just five hits. Asdrubal Cabrera hit a three-run homer off of a floaty changeup from Anthony Swarzak, part of a third inning in which Cleveland scored four and the Twins made two defensive mistakes.

Michael Cuddyer homered in the ninth to draw the Twins within 5-2, but by then it was too little, too late.

The game thread for the nightcap will be along in a few minutes, so let's ignore this one and move onto the night game.
