Gary Sánchez had four RBIs and Sonny Gray pitched seven superb innings to help the Twins to an 11-1 blowout of the Guardians. Sánchez hit a three-run homer in the second inning off Triston McKenzie, sending the first-place Twins on their way to an easy win in the opener of a five-game series. Nick Gordon and Carlos Correa added two-run homers for Minnesota. Cleveland has now lost five straight. Gray gave up just three singles and at one point retired 15 of 16 batters.
