MINNEAPOLIS - Hot, steamy weather caused problems for some fans attending the first game of Monday's Cleveland-Minnesota doubleheader at Target Field.

Twins spokesman Kevin Smith says at least a couple dozen people needed to be treated at the ballpark for heat ailments, and a few were taken to a hospital. But Smith says there were no serious problems.

The Twins provided free water stations at the gates and other locations around the outdoor ballpark where fans could fill bottles.

The temperature at first pitch was 90 degrees. The announced attendance was 39,768, but many fans sought shade in the concourses.

The Indians won the first game 5-2. The second game was scheduled to begin at 7:10 p.m. Central time.
