Trevor Crowe drove in two runs and had a career-high four hits, and the Cleveland Indians collected a season-high 20 hits in their fifth straight win, 10-4 over the Minnesota Twins on Monday night.
Crowe and Jason Donald, two of the youngsters thrust into action in this rebuilding, injury-marred season for Cleveland, each drove in two runs to help the Indians start the second half 5-0 for the first time in history.
Scott Baker (7-9) surrendered 10 hits in 4 2-3 innings, increasing Minnesota's concern about the rotation. After winning three out of four games from the first-place Chicago White Sox to cut the division lead to 1½ games over the weekend, the Twins fell flat.
