Indians Vs. Twins Final Score: Minnesota Outlasts Cleveland For 6-5 Win In 12 Innings

The Cleveland Indians dropped into a tie for last place in the AL Central after losing 6-5 in 12 innings to the Minnesota Twins on Tuesday night.

Alexi Casilla and Pedro Florimon Jr. each singled home a run in the top of the 12th inning to break a 4-4 deadlock and give the Twins a lead they would hold onto in the first game of a three-game series between the teams. Cleveland catcher Carlos Santana hit a solo homer in the bottom of the 12th but then Michael Brantley struck out to end the game.

The Indians had a great chance to win the game in the bottom of the 10th inning after Jason Kipnis lead off with a hit and made his way to third base with no outs. Cleveland eventually loaded the bases but three consecutive pop fly outs failed to plate the game-winner.

Cleveland starting pitcher David Huff only lasted 4 1/3 innings, leaving with his team trailing 3-2 after the left-hander gave up seven hits and three runs in his first start of the season. Nine pitchers later, Scott Maine (1-1) would take the loss after the left-hander gave up two runs in the 12th inning.

Minnesota reliever Tyler Robertson (2-2) earned the win for the Twins. The two teams will resume their series on Wednesday at 7:05 p.m. ET.
