With sparkling season debut by Salazar, Indians top Twins

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Danny Salazar matched his career high with 10 strikeouts while pitching into the seventh inning of his season debut, giving the Cleveland Indians a spark in a 4-2 victory over the Minnesota Twins on Saturday.

Roberto Perez had a home run among his three hits for the Indians, and Jason Kipnis stopped an 0-for-16 slide with a two-out, RBI single in the seventh that prompted the Twins to pull starter Phil Hughes (0-3).

Kurt Suzuki led off the bottom of that inning with a homer that cut Cleveland's lead to two runs, and Salazar was removed. Nick Hagadone retired all six batters he faced, and Cody Allen finished up with a hitless ninth for his third save in as many attempts.
