INDIANS 9, TWINS 8
Francisco Lindor’s second home run of the game snapped an eighth-inning tie after Minnesota erased an eight-run deficit, and Cleveland held on for the win.
Lindor also hit two doubles and drove in four runs for the Indians, who stretched their winning streak to a season-best six straight games despite another wobbly performance by their bullpen until Cody Allen finished by getting the final four outs – his ninth save in 10 opportunities.
Tyler Olson (1-1) got the last two outs of the eighth.
In the next inning, Lindor straightened the Indians out with his one-out drive off Addison Reed (1-4). The star shortstop became the first player in the major leagues since Adrian Beltre for Seattle in 2007 to hit two doubles and two homers in two different games in one season.
The Twins lost for the seventh time in their last eight games.
