Twins snap losing streak with a walk-off winner over Cleveland


Cleveland Indians 3

Minnesota Twins 4

The Minnesota Twins returned to Target Field by getting a much-needed win in dramatic fashion. The Twins beat the Cleveland Indians 4-3 at Target Field on a walk-off home run.

1. Oswaldo did it

Oswaldo Arcia ended the game by launching his third home run of the season in the bottom of the ninth to win the game. It was his second walk-off hit already in the young season.

2. Timely hitting leads Twins

The Twins have been criticized for a lack of timely hitting so far this year, but that wasn't the case on Monday night as both Brian Dozier and Miguel Sano came up big in the sixth inning.

With the Twins trailing 2-0, Dozier delivered a game-tying double, Sano then followed with a two-out single to score Dozier and give Minnesota the lead.

3. Exhausted bullpen comes through

Twins starter Tommy Milone lasted just 4.2 innings. That meant the day after their 16-inning loss in Washington the Twins bullpen was called on early again.

The group came through as Trevor May, Fernando Abad, Ryan Pressly and Kevin Jepsen (1-3) held the Indians to one run the rest of the way. Jepsen picked up the win, his first of the season.
