MINNEAPOLIS — It has been a while, but it can still happen.
Corey Kluber lost for the first time in nine starts yesterday as the Minnesota Twins beat the Indians 4-1 at Target Field to prevent a three-game sweep. Kluber’s first loss since June 30 ended a six-game winning streak for the right-hander.
“He didn’t have his command from the get-go. Every inning, they really made him work,” manager Terry Francona said after the Indians were denied their first sweep of a road series this year and dropped six games behind Kansas City in the American League Central.
