GAME 1 | Minot State 6, Bemidji State 1
Junior Gunnar Kozlowitz collected four hits to help power the Minot State Beavers past the Bemidji State Beavers 6-1 on Friday.

In addition to his four hits, Kozlowitz had a home run and three RBI to lead the Beavers. Junior Cameron Carr put together a noteworthy performance as well, going 2-for-4 with an RBI. Junior Mark Ossanna also contributed for Minot State, putting together one hit in three trips to the plate while adding a walk and an RBI.
The Beavers got on the board immediately, starting their scoring with a run in the top of the first inning. Kozlowitz put Minot State on the board with a two-out solo home run off junior Will Lavin. The Bemidji State Beavers failed to push any runs across before the Beavers built on their lead in the third inning. Minot State put together a three-run frame, culminating in a run-scoring single from Carr, which brought the score to 4-0 in favor of the Beavers.

CLEVELAND (AP) — Max Kepler hit a two-run homer and Bailey Ober pitched seven innings in a combined three-hitter, sending the Minnesota Twins to a 2-0 victory over the Cleveland Guardians. Ober gave up three hits and a walk while striking out six, lowering his season ERA to 0.98 over three starts. Jorge López worked a clean eighth and Jhoan Duran pitched the ninth for his seventh save. Guardians starter Peyton Battenfield did not allow a baserunner until Christian Vázquez singled with two outs in the sixth. Kepler followed with a 440-foot blast to right field, driving in the only runs of the ballgame. The Twins have homered in a franchise-record 17 consecutive games. Kepler has 15 home runs at Progressive Field since 2016, the most by a visiting player. Battenfield worked a season-high seven innings, giving up two hits, in his fifth big-league appearance. The righty struck out seven without issuing a walk, only permitting two hard-hit balls to Vázquez and Kepler. Byron Buxton of the Twins went 0 for 3 with three strikeouts, ending his eight-game hitting streak. He also had reached base multiple times in a career-high six straight. Minnesota leads the AL Central by 4 1/2 games over the Guardians, who have lost nine of their last 13 and are a season-low four games below .500. The teams will meet 12 more times this season.
Twins RHP Sonny Gray (4-0, 0.77 ERA) takes on Guardians LHP Logan Allen (1-1, 2.45 ERA) in the second game of the three-game series. Gray tied the franchise record for the lowest ERA in March/April, allowing three runs in 35 innings.
