The Indians stretched their winning streak to six games Saturday as Scott Kazmir won his first game in over two years and Nick Swisher celebrated his return to the lineup with a homer in a 7-3 victory over the Twins at Progressive Field.

The winning streak is longest by the Indians since they won seven straight from April 26-May 3, 2011. The victory gave the Indians a winning record at 14-13. It's the first time they've posted a winning record since they were 2-1 on April 4.

During the winning streak, the Indians have outscored the opposition, 49-14.

Kazmir (1-1, 6.28) allowed two runs and struck out seven in six innings to win his first game since Sept. 19, 2010. He allowed five hits and threw 95 pitches.

The Indians' relentless offense jumped Kevin Correia (3-2, 2.83) for a 2-0 lead in the first on homers by Jason Kipnis and Swisher. Kipnis homered with one out and Swisher with two. They both hit 3-1 pitches.

Swisher missed three straight games -- four days including an off day -- with a sore left shoulder. As he crossed the plate, Swisher made the sign "O-H-I-O" in honor of Ohio State, where he played baseball.
