Bourn, big first inning pace Indians to 8-7 win

Posted: Updated:

CLEVELAND (AP) - Michael Bourn had three hits and three RBIs to help Corey Kluber win his third consecutive start as the Cleveland Indians won their fourth straight with an 8-7 victory against the Minnesota Twins on Saturday night.

Cleveland took advantage of 5 first-inning walks to score six runs. Jason Kipnis added three hits to pace the Indians, who are 8-2 since losing eight in a row.

Kluber (6-4) gave up three runs in 5 2-3 innings. The right-hander has allowed four earned runs in 21 2-3 innings in his last three starts.

Minnesota starter P.J. Walters (2-3) walked 5 of the nine batters he faced, hit one and didn't get through the first inning when Cleveland had only two hits.
