(AP) An 8-year-old Cleveland Indians fan with cerebral palsy had a wish straight out of Hollywood: He asked two of his favorite players to hit home runs.


And Carlos Santana and Jason Kipnis sure know how to follow a script.


Before Saturday's game against the Minnesota Twins, Niko Lanzarotta and his family were on the field watching the Indians take batting practice. The youngster met several players and asked Santana and Kipnis if they would hit knock one out of the park for him.


How could they say no?


Santana, who is Niko's favorite player, hit a two-run homer in the first. Kipnis added a two-run shot in the third. Niko's night was made complete when the Indians defeated the Twins 7-2.
