MINNEAPOLIS — Justin Masterson had another rough night on the hill. His Monday night in Minnesota got tougher to handle as the game wore on. Masterson allowed six earned runs in 6 2/3 innings on the hill. The Twins took a 7-2 decision.
Masterson saw his troubles intensify in the 6th and 7th innings. The Twins took a 3-1 lead on a Revere RBI single and a Morneau RBI.
Lonnie Chisenhall spanked a solo shot and the Tribe was down just one run in the top of the 7th, but Minnesota tacked on three runs in the bottom of the same frame to put the game out of reach. One of the runs came, courtesy of a Masterson wild pitch.
In the 8th inning, Doumit homered to center field. The Indians offense managed only three hits all night.
The Indians move on to Texas for another road series on Tuesday night. Game time is 8:05 p.m.
