Scherzer (2-1) allowed two runs in six innings.

Joe Nathan pitched the ninth for his fourth save in six tries. He got the final two outs on a strikeout where Jose Abreu was called for interfering with catcher Bryan Holaday’s throw to second base on a stolen-base attempt.

Jose Quintana (1-1) allowed three runs in six innings.

TWINS 9, RAYS 7

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - Aaron Hicks hit a three-run homer, Kurt Suzuki drove in three runs and the Minnesota Twins beat the Tampa Bay Rays.

Former Rays outfielder Sam Fuld hit a pair of RBI doubles for the Twins, who won two of three for their first road series win against the Rays since Sept. 4-6, 2006. Minnesota manager Ron Gardenhire moved past Chuck Dressen into sole possession of 59th place on the career victory list with 1,009.

Ricky Nolasco (2-2) allowed six runs and 10 hits over six-plus innings. Glen Perkins pitched the ninth for his fifth save.

Erik Bedard (0-1) gave up four runs, five hits and five walks in four innings.

INDIANS 5, ROYALS 1

CLEVELAND (AP) - Corey Kluber struck out a career-high 11 and pitched a four-hitter for his first complete game, and David Murphy and Asdrubal Cabrera drove in two runs apiece, leading the Cleveland Indians over the Kansas City Royals.

Kluber (2-2) didn’t walk a batter and let Cleveland manager Terry Francona give some needed rest to his bullpen.

Murphy and Cabrera delivered big hits in the Indians’ five-run fifth off Bruce Chen (1-2), who controlled Cleveland’s lineup for four innings.

The Indians have won four of five to get back to .500.
