Kepler's homer sparks Twins in DH split with Indians

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Aaron Slegers calmly took the mound for Minnesota in his major league debut and helped the Twins beat Cleveland at home for the first time all season.

Then the emotion came, when he left the field to a standing ovation in the seventh inning.

Max Kepler made up for a fielding flub in the top of the seventh with the go-ahead home run in the bottom of the inning, sending the Twins to a 4-2 victory in the second game to salvage a doubleheader split with the Indians on Thursday.
