Swarzak Steps Up

Anthony Swarzak pitched five sharp innings in a fill-in start, Oswaldo Arcia homered and the Minnesota Twins beat the Cleveland Indians 3-1 Wednesday.

Danny Santana scored after two of his three hits for the Twins, and five relievers totaled six strikeouts over four scoreless innings. Glen Perkins finished up in the ninth for his 24th save in 27 tries.

When Kyle Gibson developed a sore back the day before, Swarzak (2-0) was summoned from the bullpen to replace him in the rotation. He threw 75 pitches, well over the limit the Twins had in mind, but the right-hander allowed just two hits and one walk while striking out three. He was only in trouble once.

Trevor Bauer (4-5) finished six innings for the 11th time in 14 starts this season for the Indians, but he lost for the first time in five July starts.
