Indians 3, Twins 1
No Tribe pitcher, at least since 1969, has started with a longer streak than Scott Lewis. (AP)
Scott Lewis continued to dazzle, allowing three hits over six innings to run his scoreless-innings streak to start his big league career to 14, and Kelly Shoppach and Shin-Soo Choo homered to give the Indians the series opener. Jensen Lewis allowed a run but earned the save.
