The Indians offense put together three multi-run rallies on Friday night to take their series opener in Minnesota. Russ Canzler corked his first career major league homer and finished the night three for four with three RBIs. David Huff also picked up his first win of the season as the Tribe tries to avoid the cellar in Central.
