MINNEAPOLIS - Mike Aviles didnt know his numbers against Ricky Nolasco going into Wednesday nights game. New Balance Shoes From China . But hes glad his manager did. Aviles homered among his three hits and drove in two runs, and rookie T.J. House threw shutout ball into the sixth inning, combining with four relievers to pitch the Cleveland Indians past the Minnesota Twins 5-0 Wednesday night. Indians manager Terry Francona started Aviles at third base and rested regular starter Lonnie Chisenhall, in part because Aviles had a good track record against Nolasco (5-9). Aviles went 2 for 3 off the Twins starter and drove in the Indians third run with a broken-bat single. Hes now 7 for 11 with 4 RBIs in his career against Nolasco. "I didnt even know that. I know Ive hit some balls decently against (Nolasco) but I didnt know the numbers," said Aviles, who homered into the second deck in left field off reliever Sam Deduno in the ninth inning as well. "I dont even know what it is. I guess sometimes you just see some pitchers a little better than others." Nolasco gave up four runs in 6 2-3 innings. He has now given up 17 home runs in 20 starts. No Twins pitcher has allowed more homers or lost more games this season than Nolasco, who signed a four-year, $48 million contract last December to anchor Minnesotas rotation. "They definitely did attack, but thats something thats happened throughout my career because they know Im going to fill up the strike zone for the most part," Nolasco said. "Sometimes they jump on me a little bit but if you make adjustments and make quality pitches youll get guys out." House (2-3) gave up four hits while striking out five and walked three. The Indians extended Minnesotas scoreless streak to 17 innings. TITO TAKES THE PLUNGE Francona conducted his postgame press briefing in a soggy uniform after he and his coaches taped an ice bucket challenge in the dugout after the game. Francona was challenged by Boston manager John Farrell, but he had another Red Sox great on his mind as he was drenched. "The whole time I was doing it, I dont want to get all emotional, but I was thinking of Curt Schilling," Francona said of his former ace pitcher now battling cancer. "I know how near and dear the fight to find a cure for this is to him." DOUBLE THREAT Twins 2B Brian Dozier became the sixth player in team history with a 20/20 season when he stole second base in the first inning. Torii Hunter was the last Twin to accomplish the feat in 2004. Dozier, who also has 20 homers, posted career highs with 18 home runs and 14 stolen bases last year. TRAINERS ROOM Indians: 1B/OF Nick Swisher underwent season-ending arthroscopic surgery on both knees on Wednesday. He had been suffering from chronic pain related to cartilage damage. Swishers recovery is expected to take eight to 10 weeks. Twins: RHP Kohl Stewart, the fourth pick in the 2013 MLB draft, was pulled from his start at Class A Cedar Rapids in the second inning on Tuesday night when his fastball was registering 5-to-7 mph slower than usual. Twins general manager Terry Ryan said he didnt think Stewarts situation was serious, and that he hoped Stewart would make another start before the end of the minor league season. UP NEXT Indians: Corey Kluber (13-6) hasnt lost since June 30 and can tie for the AL lead in victories if he wins his seventh straight decision on Thursday. Kluber has struck out 10 batters five times in his last eight starts. Twins: Phil Hughes (13-8) also can tie for the AL lead in victories with a win Thursday. Hughes has won three straight starts, allowing just one earned run in each outing. Discount New Balance Shoes .

Neymar scored once and set up Brazils other two goals during its 3-1 victory over Portugal in a friendly match before 62,310 fans at Gillette Stadium on Tuesday night. "He has been playing very well for three, four years," Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari said through a translator. "Only once in every 15 or 20 games does he not play what he knows how to do. "But normally, Neymar is this." Thiago Silva and Jo also scored for the Confederations Cup champions and 2014 World Cup hosts, who improved to 13-4-3 all time against Portugal. The result may have been different, though, had Portugal been playing with Cristiano Ronaldo, who was not in attendance as he deals with tendinitis. The Real Madrid winger and second-highest goal-scorer in Portugals history played through pain Friday, according to team doctor Henrique Jones, recording his first international hat trick in a World Cup qualifying victory over Northern Ireland. The comeback win briefly left Portugal, ranked seventh in the world, atop Group F before Russia moved back in front with a 3-1 win over Israel on Tuesday. "Naturally, hes an important player. Were talking about one of the best players in the world," Portugal coach Paulo Bento said through a translator. "Naturally, he has a great influence on the way we play. But we didnt lose this game due to his absence. Cheap New Balance Running Shoes. " Scolari wasnt too disappointed Ronaldo didnt play. "I dont miss him a lot," he said with a laugh. "He would complicate our life a lot more." It was the second game in four days for ninth-ranked Brazil, which defeated Australia 6-0 on Saturday and has lost just once this year. And Brazil came out sluggish to start. After hitting the post with a header in the 11th minute, Raul Meireles gave Portugal a 1-0 lead in the 17th when he intercepted a misplayed header by Brazil defender Maicon and slipped the ball past goalkeeper Julio Cesar. Brazil answered in the 24th minute when Neymars corner kick found the head of Silva, who rose high in the box above Portugals players and drove the ball past keeper Rui Patricio. Neymar then put Brazil in front for good in the 34th, deftly dribbling 35 yards through at least five Portugal players before sending a shot into the lower left side of the net. He later slid a pass up the sideline to Maxwell, who centred a ball that Jo easily put into the back of the net in the 49th minute. "Once we took the lead, we were more calm and then Neymar hit one, two, three players, and the opponent was on its back heels," Scolari said. Brazil defender Dani Alves (knee) and striker Hulk (thigh) did not play. Brazilian great Pele appeared in a pregame ceremony alongside former Portugal star Eusebio.
