Indians top Twins 5-4 on Michael Brantley’s single in 9th

CLEVELAND (AP) — Michael Brantley knew what was coming after giving the Cleveland Indians their second straight walk-off victory over the Minnesota Twins.
Brantley was mobbed by his teammates as he rounded first base following his ninth-inning single that gave Cleveland a 5-4 win Thursday.
Cleveland’s All-Star left fielder did his best to avoid the various items poured over his head.
“It’s tough,” Brantley said. “You’ve got some Gatorade. Some (baby) powder. You name it. It’s coming at you.”
The latest celebration took place about 18 hours after Francisco Lindor hit a three-run homer in the ninth inning Wednesday night for a 5-2 victory.
