CLEVELAND, OH-Well, if you missed last night's walk off by Francisco Lindor, you can thank Michael Brantley for an encore performance as the Cleveland Indians defeat the Minnesota Twins 5-4.

Greg Allen led the 9th inning with a single against Addison Reed, then he stole second base. This set up Michael Brantley off a Walk-Off single that led Allen to come run for the win.

The Indians achieved half of their walk-off wins within the last 24 hours. Prior to last night, they only had two walk-offs all season.

Corey Kluber had a no-decision after 117 pitches in seven innings. It would've been a win however after a sacrifice fly, Jorge Polanco struck a three-run homer in the sixth to tie the game at 4.

The Indians have won five of their last six including three of four against the Minnesota Twins. Indians will travel to Chicago to face the White Sox. Shane Bieber (6-2, 4.58 ERA) will face Carlos Rodon (3-3, 2.94) Friday night to begin at 3 game series. First pitch for Friday's night game will be at 8:10pm on Newsradio WTAM 1100.
