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.
