The Indians bats went silent in a 4-1 loss on Saturday, a game that ended a stretch of seven games in which the Tribe had 10 hits or more.
Twins rookie Tyler Duffey allowed just one hit over six innings, and the Twins hit three homers (Rosario, Hermann, Dozier). Roberto Perez singled home Carlos Santana in the ninth for the Indians only run.
Despite the loss, the Tribe’s rookie left side of the infield continued to impress. Francisco Lindor went 2-for-3 and walked, and turned in yet another defensive gem. Giovanny Urshela walked twice – a night after having three hits – and had a gem of his own.
Josh Tomlin, making his first appearance for the Indians this year after recovering from shoulder surgery, allowed just the Rosario and Hermann solo homers in 6.1 innings.
