Must see: Twins storm back from 8-0 and tie Cleveland on 3-run homer by Miguel Sano

But they still lost to Cleveland, 9-8.

For the second game in a row the Twins found themselves dead in the water only to mount an incredible comeback. 

Trailing 8-0 after four innings, the Twins score two runs in the fifth, two in the sixth and four more in the seventh to the game the 8-8. 

The game-tying bop game on a 3-run homer by Miguel Sano. 

Here's how the Twins scored: 

  • Robbie Grossman RBI single (8-1 Cleveland)
  • Ryan LaMarre RBI single (8-2 Cleveland)
  • Logan Morrison home run (8-3 Cleveland)
  • Eduardo Escobar home run (8-4 Cleveland)
  • Eddie Rosario RBI single (8-5 Cleveland)
  • Miguel Sano 3-run homer (8-8 tie game)

Thursday's comeback is more impressive than Wednesday's comeback in which the Twins trailed the Royals 9-0 before making it a 9-8 game that they wound up losing 11-8. 

Unfortunately, Addison Reed's subpar season out of the bullpen continued and he immediately served up a solo homer to Francisco Lindor to give Cleveland a 9-8 lead in the eighth. 

Lindor went 4-for-5 with two homers and two doubles to pace Cleveland. 

The largest come-from-behind win in Twins history is seven runs, set in May of 2000. 

The loss drops the Twins to 6 1/2 games behind the first-place Indians.
