 The Indians were in control of this one for most of the night, until the eighth anyways, when the Twins tied the score at 4. All was not lost however, as the Tribe came back in the top of the ninth, scoring the go ahead run off the bat of Choo. Perez nailed down the win in the bottom half of the inning.
