CLEVELAND (AP) — Joe Mauer had four hits and four RBIs, Brian Dozier hit a three-run homer and the Minnesota Twins continued their mastery over the Cleveland Indians with a 13-5 win on Wednesday night.

Cleveland, the AL Central leader, fell to 4-8 against last-place Minnesota. The Twins have outscored the Indians 35-16 in winning the first three games of this series.

The Indians’ frustration boiled over when manager Terry Francona was ejected in the third inning.

The Indians’ lead over Detroit in the AL Central lead has shrunk to two games.

Tyler Duffey (6-8) allowed five runs in six innings. Eddie Rosario had three hits and three RBIs while rookie Max Kepler had two hits and drove in two runs.

Trevor Bauer (7-5) gave up eight runs — seven earned — in 2 2/3 innings. Mike Napoli homered for the fifth straight game while Tyler Naquin also went deep for Cleveland.
