MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – Oswaldo Arcia led off the ninth inning with a home run off of Zach McAllister to lift the Minnesota Twins to a 4-3 victory over the Cleveland Indians on Monday night.
Brian Dozier added a two-run double and the heavily taxed Twins bullpen gave up one run over the final 4 1-3 innings to snap a three-game skid. Kevin Jepsen (1-3) pitched the ninth for the win.
Yan Gomes homered and Michael Brantley made his season debut with a pinch-hit appearance in the eighth inning for the Indians, who had a three-game winning streak snapped. McAllister (1-1) gave up his first run in nine appearances this season.
