TWINS 7, INDIANS 5
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Eddie Rosario hit his third homer of the game, launching a two-run shot in the bottom of the ninth inning to lift Minnesota.
Rosario became the first Twins player to have a pair of three-homer games. He also hit three home runs last June 13 at home against the Mariners. Harmon Killebrew and Tony Oliva are among the Twins who did it once.
Minnesota beat AL Central-leading Cleveland for the third straight day.
Cleveland closer Cody Allen (2-2) walked Brian Dozier to lead off the ninth and Rosario homered.
Edwin Encarnacion hit two long home runs for Cleveland, and Michael Brantley's solo shot off Addison Reed in the eighth tied it at 5. Fernando Rodney (2-2) pitched a scoreless ninth.
