MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – Cleveland’s lineup came to life, and Cal Quantrill gave the Indians another strong start.

José Ramírez and Myles Straw each had three of Cleveland’s 14 hits.

Mercado and Bradley drove in three runs.

Ramírez had two RBIs to reach 90 for the season for the Indians.

Miguel Sanó had the only two hits for Minnesota against Quantrill, including a three-run homer in the seventh.
