2. Polanco hits first career homer

Infielder Jorge Polanco hit his first home run since the Twins called him up to the majors in June 2014. The run was also his fourth RBI of the season. It gave the twins a 3-0 lead over the Indians in the seventh.

3. Ninth inning insurance

More than once this season the Twins have been ahead going into the last few innings – and then given up runs at the end to come out with a loss. But the ninth inning of Sunday's game had a refreshing ending. A double from Eddie Rosario brought Byung Ho Park and Jorge Polanco home. The Twins went into the bottom of the ninth with a four-run lead.
