Hafner, Sizemore power Tribe to win over Twins

By Tom Withers The Associated Press

CLEVELAND – Jake Westbrook got his fourth win of August, rookie Asdrubal Cabrera drove in the go-ahead run and the Cleveland Indians kept a tight grip on the AL Central lead with a 6-5 win over the Minnesota Twins on yesterday night.

Travis Hafner hit a two-run homer off Boof Bonser (6-11) and Grady Sizemore added a solo shot for the Indians, who have won four straight and are 9-3 since Aug. 15 – the day Cabrera replaced Josh Barfield in the starting lineup.

Jason Tyner had four hits for the Twins, who fell 7 1/2 games behind division-leading Cleveland.

The loss overshadowed three spectacular defensive plays by Minnesota’s Torii Hunter, Nick Punto and Jason Tyner. Hunter’s catch on the dead run before crashing into the center-field wall in the seventh was the best of the bunch.

Westbrook (5-7) allowed three runs – all in the fifth – and 10 hits in 6 2-3 innings. The right-hander, who spent six weeks on the disabled list and began the season 1-6, went 4-1 this month with 1.90 ERA.

Rafael Perez got one out in the seventh, Rafael Betancourt worked a perfect eighth and Joe Borowski, who got a pair of needed insurance runs from the Indians in the eighth, closed for his 38th save.

Borowski gave up rookie Brian Buscher’s first major league homer and allowed the Twins to get runners to second and third. Hunter’s sacrifice fly made it 6-5, but Borowski struck out Justin Morneau looking to end it.

After Minnesota rallied to tie it in the fifth, Cabrera’s RBI single in the bottom half put Cleveland ahead 4-3.

Kenny Lofton singled and moved up on Bonser’s errant pickoff throw. The Twins intentionally walked Sizemore with two outs to face Cabrera, who has sparked the Indians since Barfield was benched.
