Minneapolis, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- Justin Masterson took a no-hitter into the seventh inning, and Michael Brantley hit a bases-clearing three-run triple as the Cleveland Indians avoided the sweep and beat the Minnesota Twins 7-1 on Sunday afternoon.

Masterson (11-7) threw seven innings, allowing just one run and one hit while striking out eight.
