Cleveland first baseman Lynwood Richardson had a terrific game, but it still wasn't enough to get his team a win. Richardson went 4-4 with a home run, a double, and 2 singles. He scored 2 times and drove in 2, even as Minnesota beat the Indians, 12-6. Richardson was named the player of the game despite the loss. The save went to Chris Riley, his 1st this season. The loss drops Cleveland to 6-7.

Los Angeles, California-born Artie Sparks came through in the clutch. In the bottom of the fourth, with the bases loaded and the Twins trailing 4-2, he hit a grand slam home run to left to put Minnesota on top.

"We put it together today and came out with the win," Sparks said in postgame remarks. "That's the main thing."
