CLEVELAND (AP) -- Aaron Laffey pitched into the seventh inning and rookie Tony Sipp came up with two big strikeouts, helping the Cleveland Indians beat the Minnesota Twins 4-2 on Sunday and avoid a three-game sweep.

Laffey (2-0) allowed two runs and five hits in 6Zc innings. Laffey, who began the year at Triple-A Columbus, has been the Indians' most consistent starter. He has a 2.41 ERA in three starts since being recalled on April 15.
