Minneapolis (USA), Aug 1 (EFE) .- Dominican first baseman Miguel Sanó hit two home runs, Puerto Rican Ranger Eddie Rosario added one and the Minnesota Twins shuttered the Cleveland Indians 3-0 this Saturday.
Sanó (2), who achieved his first two home runs so far this season, began the punishment against the Indians in the third episode by hunting the shipments that the Venezuelan starter Carlos Carrasco sent him, with no teammates ahead.
In the fifth inning, the Dominican punished Carrasco again with another full round hit, also solo, and ended with two RBIs and two runs scored.
Sanó started the day with a hit in 17 at-bats, a slow start after recovering from the coronavirus during summer camp.
Rosario (2) took the ball off the field in the fourth episode, also beating Carrasco, with no teammates on board.
On the mound, the winner was starter Kenta Maeda (2-0) in six episodes, accepting a hit, gave a base and struck out six.
Maeda retired 13 of the first 14 batters he faced and did not allow a hit until Bradley Zimmer hit him in the fifth inning.
For the Indians the defeat was carried by Carrasco (1-1) in six innings, with punishment of six hits, three home runs and three runs.
