MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Kennys Vargas homered and sparked rallies with two other hits, leading the Minnesota Twins past Corey Kluber and the Cleveland Indians 4-1 Thursday.
Phil Hughes (14-8) struck out eight over seven innings to forge a four-way tie for the American League lead in victories, with Rick Porcello, Max Scherzer and Scott Kazmir.

Kluber (13-7) had his winning streak stopped at six, despite eight strikeouts over seven innings.
