The Cleveland Indians beat the injury-riddled Minnesota Twins 9-4 today for their first three-game winning streak this season.....

     CLEVELAND (AP) - Asdrubal Cabrera had four hits and three RBIs, Michael Brantley also homered and the Cleveland Indians beat the injury-riddled Minnesota Twins 9-4 today for their first three-game winning streak this season.
 
     Cabrera, who entered hitting .215, had a solo homer in the second innings and RBI doubles in the seventh and eighth. He also singled in the fifth.  Brantley hit a two-run homer in the fifth and had an RBI grounder in the sixth. He also doubled and scored in the first, then singled in the third.
 
     Justin Masterson (2-1) allowed four runs - two earned - four hits and four walks in 6 1-3 innings. Kevin Corriea (1-4) gave up four runs, eight hits and four walks in 4 1-3 innings for the Twins.
 
     Minnesota played their fourth straight game without first baseman Joe Mauer, who could be headed to the disabled list because of back spasms. Outfielder Sam Fuld was placed on the seven-day DL with concussion-like symptoms, leaving infielder Pedro Florimon as Minnesota's only bench player when the game began.

     ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - The Minnesota Wild are bracing for more aggression from the Chicago Blackhawks.  Minnesota won a slower Game 3 to cut Chicago's lead in the series to 2-1. Game 4 is Friday, and the Blackhawks will be fired up to get their attack back on track.
 
     The Wild have some ready-made remedies for that. The centers on their first three lines, Mikko Koivu, Mikael Granlund and Erik Haula, bring defensive-minded games that make them a good fit in their system. The rookie Haula's skating speed in particular has been a big boost.
 
     Lineups for both teams could change for Game 4. The Wild will replace Matt Moulson with Matt Cooke. Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said today he's looking for more of a balanced scoring threat on each line.

     Some of the top names on the board this year are quarterbacks Johnny Manziel of Texas Tech, Blake Bortles of Central Florida and Teddy Bridgewater of Louisville.
