TWINS 4, INDIANS 3
Robbie Grossman had a two-out, two-run single off struggling Cleveland closer Cody Allen in the seventh inning to lift Minnesota.
Down 3-2, the Twins scored twice in the seventh off Allen (4-6), the Indians’ career saves leader who has not been sharp of late and could lose his job to Brad Hand.
Minnesota’s Joe Mauer became the third player in club history to score 1,000 career runs. Mauer doubled and scored on Eddie Rosario’s double in the fifth to join Hall of Famers Kirby Puckett (1,071) and Harmon Killebrew (1,047). Twins rookie Willians Astudillo hit his first career homer in the third.
Trevor May (3-0) picked up the win, and Trevor Hildenberger worked a 1-2-3 ninth for his fifth save.
