Twins Top Indians 6-4 in 10 Innings on Tosoni’s HR
CLEVELAND (AP) – Rene Tosoni led off the 10th inning with a home run and the Minnesota Twins beat Cleveland 6-4, preventing the Indians from clinching second place in the AL Central on Sunday.
Tosoni hit his fourth homer on a 1-1 pitch from Tony Sipp (6-3) to give Kyle Waldrop (1-0) his first career win. Chris Parmelee added an RBI single later in the inning.
Waldrop worked a scoreless ninth and Joe Nathan pitched the bottom half for his 10th consecutive save and 14th in 17 chances overall as Minnesota won for only the third time in 22 games. The Twins have 98 losses with three games left and cannot tie the 1982 club for the worst record (60-102) since the franchise moved to Minnesota 50 years ago.
