Parent and twin share a double bill

CLEVELAND ( Associated Press) – It didn’t take long for Jorge Polanco to find rhythm.

Upon returning from his first major league injury stint, Polanco scored three. Rookie Josh Winder played six big innings and the Minnesota Twins won the second act of a doubleheader on Tuesday with a 6-0 win over the Cleveland Guardians.

Cleveland converted a two-run single from Emed Rosario in the eighth inning to beat the Minnesota Twins 3–2 in Game 1, ending a five-game losing streak for the Guardians.

Down 2–1 and in danger of falling four games behind the Twins at AL Central, the Guardians reacted to reliever Emilio Pagan (1–3), who walked past Miles Straw and rookie Steven Kwan before facing Rosario. .

Divisional rivals will meet five times in four days, with eight in 10 days.

Polanco, who missed game 14 with a lower back strain, was quick to make up the difference in Game 2, with a two-run shot off rookie Conor Pilkington (1-1) in the third innings, who faced defeat.

For the Twins, Luis Arrez of Venezuela 5-1. Puerto Rican Carlos Correa scored 3-1 with an RBI; and Jose Miranda 3-1. Dominican Gary Sanchez 4-1 and Gilberto Celestino 4-1 with RBI. Colombian Gio Ursella 1-0.
