The Twins tried to put a late rally together in the eighth.

Trailing by five, Brian Dozier hit a home run to lead off the eighth, his 21st of the year. Joe Mauer and Trevor Plouffe had hits to put runners at first and second, but Indians' relievers C.C. Lee and Mark Rzepczynski were able to get the last two outs and escape the inning, without any more damage.

Rzepczynski picked up a four-out save, his first ever.

The Twins and Cleveland will close the series on Sunday. Corey Kluber (16-9) starts for Cleveland. He will face Anthony Swarzak (3-1) for the Twins.
