MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Carlos Santana homered among his season high-tying four hits as the Cleveland Indians beat the Minnesota Twins 8-2 last night. Cleveland won for the fourth time in six games since the All-Star break. Minnesota has lost four of five. Santana hit a no-doubt solo shot to right field in the fifth to put the Indians up 4-1.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Minnesota Twins pitcher Kyle Gibson has been scratched from today's start against Cleveland due to lower back stiffness. Gibson will be replaced by Anthony Swarzak. Manager Ron Gardenhire says team doctors told him Gibson's back felt tight after throwing in the bullpen and then it locked up.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Maya Moore scored a franchise-record 48 points to help the Minnesota Lynx beat the Atlanta Dream 112-108 in double-overtime last night. Moore hit 16 of 30 shots from the field. The 48 points are just short of the record 51 scored by Riquna Williams last season.

Winona State says Shawn Afryl died Monday during a workout at Maxwell Field on campus.
