MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Carlos Santana hit a grand slam in the 10th inning, and the Cleveland Indians beat the Minnesota Twins 7-3 on Sunday to win the four-game series and forge another tie for the AL Central lead.

The Twins tied the game with four hits in a two-run ninth against Brad Hand (5-3), using a single by Luis Arraez and a double by Marwin Gonzalez to extend the game.

BOX SCORE: INDIANS 7, TWINS 3 (10)

As pinch-runner Ehire Adrianza tried to score the winning run from first base, left fielder Tyler Naquin grabbed the ball off the bounce from the wall and zipped a throw to shortstop Francisco Lindor, whose relay home was in perfect position for catcher Kevin Plawecki to tag Adrianza with ease.

Davis, Mets helped by Indians' mental lapse, win 4-3 in 10

Davis, Mets helped by Indians' mental lapse, win 4-3 in 10 J.D. Davis lined an RBI single with two outs that capped a two-run rally in the 10th inning and the New York Mets, helped moments earlier by a huge Cleveland mental lapse, beat the Indians 4-3 Wednesday night. All-Star reliever Brad Hand's failure to cover first base on a potential game-ending double-play grounder cost Cleveland. Davis made the Indians pay with his first career game-ending hit. The Mets won their fourth in a row and for the 20th time in 25 games, moving a season-high six over .500. It was their 12th win in the last 13 at Citi Field — they have more home games down the stretch than any team in the majors.

MINNEAPOLIS - Brian Dozier hit a grand slam in the 10 th inning on Sunday to give the Minnesota Twins an 11- 7 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays Dozier squashed the strategy with his 16th home run of the season and the fourth walk-off win for the Twins . Alan Busenitz ( 3 -0) got the last four outs

Rays: RHP Nathan Eovaldi pitches the series opener

That was Naquin's 10th outfield assist, moving into a tie for third in the majors.

Twins closer Taylor Rogers (2-3) allowed a single, a walk and another single on a bunt by Greg Allen to load the bases with none out for Santana, who quickly erased the late-inning drama with one big swing. The All-Star first baseman has reached base at least once in 53 of his last 57 games since June 4, the exact date when the Indians began their surge. They're 42-17 during that span, the best record in the majors.

Aaron Civale contributed another solid performance in his third major league start, tossing six smooth innings after Allen homered and Yasiel Puig hit an RBI double in the first inning to get the Indians going against All-Star José Berriós. Santana added an RBI single in the third for a 3-1 lead, before Berrios settled in to retire 11 straight batters.

Odorizzi, Twins end skid, top Indians for AL Central lead MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Max Kepler and Marwin Gonzalez homered, All-Star Jake Odorizzi earned his career-high 13th victory and the Minnesota Twins broke a tie with Cleveland atop the AL Central, beating the Indians 4-1 Saturday night to snap a four-game losing streak. The game was delayed 1 hour, 50 minutes at the start by rain. The Indians had won the first two in the four-game series at Target Field, tying for the division lead after trailing by 11 ½ games in early June. Odorizzi (13-5) scattered six hits and four walks over 5 2/3 innings, giving him a 1.04 ERA over his last three starts, all Twins victories.

The Twins had sole possession of first place from April 27 until Friday, before bypassing the Indians again Saturday with a 4-1 victory.

Nick Goody record three straight outs in the seventh after the first two batters reached base. Oliver Pérez pitched a perfect eighth. After Hand hit the big bump in the ninth, Hunter Wood pitched a perfect 10th inning to end the game.

The Twins and Indians play seven more times, all in September.

TOO LITTLE, TOO LATE

Berriós was aiming to bounce back from the worst start of his four-year career, having surrendered nine runs in 5 2/3 innings Tuesday as the Twins fell behind Atlanta 11-0 in a 12-7 loss. He was charged with three runs and six hits in six innings against the Indians.
