Fireworks, $1 hot dogs and 75-degree weather made the perfect setting for a Cleveland Indians game, but the Tribe couldn’t cash in, losing 5-1 to the Minnesota Twins on Friday night.
Ubaldo Jimenez (9-8) struck out 10 Twins over six innings, lowering his ERA to 3.95.
However, his teammates couldn’t generate much offense against Minnesota starter Samuel Deduno. He also pitched six innings, giving up three hits and one run.
Minnesota took the lead in the second inning on RBI doubles by shortstop Pedro Florimon and catcher Chris Herrmann.
Cleveland was in the game until the seventh, when Minnesota extended its advantage to 4-1 on a two-run double by Josh Willingham.
Despite the ideal setting for baseball, Progressive Field was just over half full, with an attendance of 23,218.
