His was the 12th three-homer game in the majors this season.Kepler singled in the ninth off Zach McAllister to raise his average to .256.

I never do.You dont see three home runs all the time, Twins manager Paul Molitor said. Its fun to watch. He does a really nice job.

Minnesota is 6-4 this season against Cleveland.Eddie Rosario led off the second with a home run. Jorge Polanco had a three-run triple in the third and tripled again in the fifth.Salazar didnt pitch in the All-Star Game because the Indians wanted to rest his arm.

I want to find out whats going on so I know whats in there.START THEM UPThe Twins took the opener of the four-game series with 19 hits, matching a season high.We play a game thats unpredictable in a lot of ways, Molitor said.
