The Minnesota Twins added to their record setting total of one-run losses by dropping Thursday night's game 9-8 to the Cleveland Indians Thursday night at Target Field in Minneapolis.

Cleveland's Francisco Lindor had a pair of doubles and a pair of home runs -- including the game-winner in the eighth inning.


Minnesota starter Jake Odorizzi gave up three runs in the first, and five more in the fourth to spot Cleveland an early 8-0 lead.

The Twins would tie things up with a mid-game rally of their own, scoring two in the fifth, two in the sixth, and four in the seventh -- before surrendering the game winning homer to Lindor in the eighth.

Minnesota has now dropped seven of their last eight games and sit at 22-30, six and a half games behind the first place Cleveland.
