MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Minnesota Twins are one game away from the AL Central title. Denard Span's RBI-single highlighted a four-run eighth inning to rally the Twins to a 6-4 victory over the Cleveland Indians on Tuesday night, reducing their magic number to one.
The Twins trailed 4-2 in the eighth. Delmon Young had an RBI-double and pinch-hitter Jose Morales added the game-tying sacrifice fly before Span's single scored Danny Valencia for the lead. Orlando Hudson added an RBI-double to finish off the burst.
The Twins entered the game needing a win over Cleveland and a loss by the White Sox in Oakland to clinch their sixth division title in nine seasons. Justin Masterson (6-13) allowed three runs and three hits in two-thirds of an inning for the Indians.
