4/30/10 Minnesota Twins 9, Cleveland Indians 3

Progressive Field, Cleveland, OH

The Twins are in town to scalp the Indians, and they do it well. The Indians get on the board due to an inning-extending outfield near-collision.

MIN 9 12 0
CLE 3 12 2

With one out, Mike Redmond pops a routine fly to RC, Cuddyer and Span nearly neail each other but the ball drops and Redmond gets a double. This collision should have been an error, but it was ruled a hit. That would have been 2 outs, with the top of the order coming up in Asdrubal Cabrera, who had grounded out in his first 2 ABs and might have again. At any rate, Slowey earns the 3 runs that happen next, but the Twins remain on top.

Orlando Hudson, Justin Morneau both drive in 2 runs apiece. The only Twins who don't hit safely are Denard Span (who reaches on a fielder's choice, driving in a run, and eventually scores) and Delmon Young (who walks and eventually scores).

The game was called by Dick Brenner and future HOFer Bert Blyleven on Fox Sports North.
