Cleveland Indians 5

Minnesota Twins 6

Miguel Sano gave the Minnesota Twins a walk off win against the Cleveland Indians on Tuesday night. The win means the Twins will win their series with Cleveland – only the second time that's happened 21 games into the season.

1. Walk it out

In the bottom of the ninth, Brian Dozier hit a one-out double; Joe Mauer was intentionally walked to put runners on first and second. With good speed on the bases, Miguel Sano launched an RBI single to center to give the Twins a win.

2. Tricky Ricky continues to roll

Ricky Nolasco produced another solid start for the Twins. The right-hander pitched into the eight inning, allowing 4 earned runs and struck out 9 batters.

3. Jepsen blows another one

Kevin Jepsen blew his third save opportunity for the Twins in the ninth inning on a moon shot to Mike Napoli that tied the game at 5.

Jepsen has allowed a run to score in three of his last four appearances.
