CLEVELAND -- The offense goes on two-week vacations, and Clevelands defense sometimes springs leaks. The starting rotation has been inconsistent, and until recently the bullpens had issues.Over the past two months, though, the Indians have been able to count on one thing: Corey Kluber has been almost flawless.Kluber struck out a season-high 11 and notched his seventh straight win, leading the Indians to an 8-4 victory on Wednesday night over the Minnesota Twins, whose losing streak has reached 13 games -- one shy of tying the club record.Unbeaten since July 3, Kluber (15-8) allowed three runs and six hits in eight solid innings. The right-hander is 7-0 with a 1.94 ERA in his last 10 starts, a stretch in which the Indians have seized control of the AL Central.Yeah, hes pretty good, Indians manager Terry Francona said. Thats a nice feeling knowing that every five days, and its not like we dont have other guys, but hes so consistent at a high level that its really nice.Carlos Santana and Roberto Perez homered off Pat Dean (1-5), and Jose Ramirez hit a two-run double during a five-run fifth as the AL Central-leading Indians swept the three-game series and extended the Twins sorry slide.Minnesota is winless since Aug. 17, and the Twins skid -- the lengthiest in the majors this season -- is also the second-longest in team history. They also lost 13 in a row in 1961 and 1982, when they dropped 14 in a row.Its been a long week, manager Paul Molitor said. We need to try to find a way to win a game at some point to just lighten the load. Its getting heavy. Guys are getting on the edge a little bit. You can feel it. Its building.Brian Dozier hit his 32nd homer and Max Kepler connected for his 16th for the Twins, who loaded the bases with two outs in the ninth off rookie Perci Garner, making his major league debut. Bryan Shaw came on and threw a wild pitch before striking out Dozier for his first save.For seven-plus innings, Kluber had little trouble against the ALs worst team. The 2014 Cy Young Award winner, who followed up an 18-win season by losing 16 last year, struck out four of the first six batters and carried a 7-1 lead into the eighth, when Dozier tagged him for a two-run homer.Clevelands offense, almost non-existent for nearly two weeks, helped Kluber by collecting 12 hits. It was only the third time in 10 games the Indians scored more than one run.In typical fashion, the stoic Kluber downplayed his performance, which took some pressure off a tired bullpen.Yeah, obviously in hindsight I gave them a break but that wasnt my goal going into today to give them a break, he said. Every time I pitch Im trying to go as deep into the game as I can. I think Tito (Francona) was joking around with me yesterday saying my pitch count would be around 140 so he took me out a little early.It was good to get out there and get some quick innings early and get ahead of them and pounded the zone and was able to go pretty deep.Santana gave Kluber and the Indians a 2-1 lead in the fourth with his 28th homer, a laser shot into the left-field stands. Santanas 28 homers -- only four have been right-handed -- are the most in franchise history by a switch-hitter.TROUBLED TOMLINThe Indians will skip Josh Tomlins next start while trying to figure out what to do next with the struggling right-hander.Tomlin is 0-5 with an 11.48 ERA in his last six starts, and he lasted a career-low 1 2/3 innings on Tuesday. Francona has remained in Tomlins corner, but with the Indians eyeing October, they cant afford any more bad performances from the 31-year-old.Were going to put our heads together, Francona said. How to get him back the best way, we need to figure that out.TRAINERS ROOMIndians: C Yan Gomes, out since July 17 with a separated right shoulder, is expected to begin a rehab assignment in the next week. The club made a procedural move with him, putting him on the 60-day disabled list. Hes eligible to be activated on Sept. 16.UP NEXTTwins: Ervin Santana, the subject of trade rumors in recent days, will open a four-game series at home against the Chicago White Sox.Indians: Following an off day, the Indians will open a three-game series against the Miami Marlins with Carlos Carrasco facing Andrew Cashner.

WELLESLEY, Mass. -- Ellen Port won her third U.S. Senior Womens Amateur title and seventh USGA championship Thursday, beating Andrea Kraus 3 and 2 at Wellesley Country Club.The 55-year-old Port, from St. Louis, also won the event for players 50 and over in 2012 and 2013 and the U.S. Womens Mid-Amateur in 1995, 1996, 2000 and 2011. With seven USGA womens titles, shes tied for second place with Carol Semple Thompson and Anne Quast Sander, one behind JoAnne Gunderson Carner.Fantastic, Port said. Its always great to win a USGA championship. You work so hard to get here, and its just so special when you can finish it off.Port was 2 under par for 16 holes, with the usual match-play concessions.Ellen is amazing, said the 55-year-old Kraus, from Baltimore. Shes a lovely human being and I give her incredible kudos. Shes got a family -- she does it all.In addition to Carner, only Bobby Jones and Tiger Woods with nine, as well as?Jack Nicklaus?with eight, have won more USGA championships than Port.Ports 7-1 record is the best among female players who have reached six or mmore USGA finals.dddddddddddd Thompson is 7-3, Glenna Collett Vare 6-2 and Carner 6-3.On Wednesday night, Port received a text of encouragement from Thompson.Its mind-boggling, Port said. Im definitely not in that league. [Anne and Carol] are both good friends of mine. Carol drummed me the first time I played in an event. She beat me 6 and 5 at the [Womens] Western. She was a legend and we sat down and had lunch. Ive learned a lot from her and respect her. Its just a real honor.Port is the womens golf coach at Washington University in St. Louis. She also still teaches at the John Burroughs School, a private high school.My team has been texting me and theyve been having way more fun at practice since Ive been gone, Port said. The captains have been in charge and they have a trick-shot video that they created. I would not be sitting here if both of my employers had not allowed me to play and continue to compete. So I am very grateful. ' ' '
