MLB roundup: Bauer fans 11 as Indians blank Twins

Trevor Bauer struck out 11 and gave up just three hits over six innings, and Edwin Encarncion gave him plenty of support with a home run and four RBIs as the host Cleveland Indians cruised to a 10-0 victory over the Minnesota Twins on Monday night at Progressive Field.

Yonder Alonso, Brandon Guyer, and Jason Kipnis also homered for Cleveland, which won its third straight game and improved to 33-15 against AL Central competition. Francisco Lindor, Michael Brantley, and Kipnis each finished with two hits.

It was the 10th double-digit strikeout game of the season for Bauer (11-6), tying Boston's Chris Sale for the American League lead in that category.

The 11 strikeouts also gave Bauer 206 for the season, making him the 11th pitcher in Cleveland history to reach 200 strikeouts in a season -- and the second fastest to do it behind only 2017 AL Cy Young Award winner Corey Kluber.

Marlins 2, Cardinals 1

Wei-Yin Chen pitched 5 2/3 scoreless innings as Miami snapped the longest active losing streak in the major leagues at six games, defeating visiting St. Louis.

Javy Guerra earned his first save since 2014, inheriting a bases-loaded jam in the ninth. On his second pitch, he got Yadier Molina to bounce into a game-ending double play.

Chen (4-8) allowed one hit -- a single -- and two walks, striking out four and lowering his home ERA to 1.94. Starlin Castro led Miami's offense, going 2-for-3 with a home run.

Mets 6, Reds 4

Wilmer Flores celebrated his birthday with three hits, including a pair of RBI singles, to lead host New York to a victory over Cincinnati.

The Mets won for just the third time in 10 games. The Reds have lost six of seven.

Flores, 27, is the first Mets player to have at least three hits on his birthday since Jeromy Burnitz did so on April 15, 2003. Austin Jackson and Jeff McNeil each added three hits for New York, and McNeil homered.
