MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (AP) — Rookie T.J. House threw shutout ball into the sixth inning, combining with four relievers to pitch the Indians past the Minnesota Twins 5-0 Wednesday night.

The good news was dampened slightly by word that the Tribe would lose Nick Swisher for the season.

Swisher is having arthroscopic procedures performed on both knees in Los Angeles. The club said he’ll need 8 to 10 weeks to recover.

Swisher has underperformed after getting a four-year, $56 million contract from the Indians before last season.

Rookie Zach Walters hit his sixth homer. It was his third home run in eight games with the Indians since he was acquired from Washington on July 31 in a trade for shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera.

House (2-3) gave up four hits while striking out five and walked three. The Indians extended Minnesota’s scoreless streak to 17 innings.

Ricky Nolasco (5-9) gave up four runs in 6 2-3 innings.
