The outfielder pretty much single-handedly beat the Indians.
Publish date:

Eddie Rosario, take a bow.

The outfielder, who is on a super hot streak right now, gave the Twins a vital 3-1 series win over the Cleveland Indians with a walk off home run in the 9th inning.

It was his THIRD homer of the game.

Rosario had given the Twins a 1-0 lead with his first, then gave them the lead again 5-4 with his second, but a Michael Brantley homer had pegged the Twins back at Target Field.

But after Fernando Rodney pitched a clutch 9th for the Twins, Rosario sent Target Field berserk with his third bomb, scoring Brian Dozier for a 7-5 win.
