Andy Marte blasted a two-run homer and drove in three runs Thursday, as the Cleveland Indians defeated the Minnesota Twins 8-1 and avoided a three-game series sweep.

Mitch Talbot allowed just two hits and one run over his six innings to post the victory for the Indians.
Scott Baker was rocked for 10 hits and six earned runs in 5 2-3 innings of work for the Twins in the loss.
