Kepler homers twice, Ryan’s 11 Ks lead Twins over Cubs 5-4

CHICAGO (AP) Max Kepler homered twice, rookie Joe Ryan struck out a season-high 11, and the Minnesota Twins held on to beat the Chicago Cubs 5-4 Wednesday night.

Kepler staked the Twins to a 2-0 lead with a homer in the first inning and hit his 19th home run in the fourth, a tiebreaking drive. He has 11 multihomer games, including two this year.

The Cubs and Twins are both 67-85, nearing the end of disappointing seasons. Chicago lost for the ninth time in 11 games.
