Indians Vs. Twins Final Score: Tribe Loses In Tough Fashion, 8-7

The Cleveland Indians' second-half collapse continued Sunday, with the team suffering an excruciating 8-7 loss to the Minnesota Twins on Sunday.

After blowing leads of 4-0 and 6-4, the Indians fought back from a 7-6 deficit to tie the game in the top of the eighth on a Jason Donald triple ... only to lose the game on a Justin Morneau walk-off home run.

Corey Kluber got the start for the Tribe and went just 3.2 innings, giving up five runs (four earned) on eight hits.

Carlos Santana powered the Indians offense, going 3-for-5 with a home run and a double. No other Indians hitter had more than one hit.

Vinnie Pestano got the loss for the Indians, as he allowed the Morneau home run with two outs in the bottom of the ninth.
