Indians hand Twins AL-worst 90th loss
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Jim Thome hit home run No. 603 in his return to Minnesota, and the Cleveland Indians beat the Twins 7-6 Friday night to keep the Detroit Tigers from clinching the AL Central title.
Thome homered in the ninth inning against Joe Nathan for a 7-4 lead, just Thome's second home run since Cleveland reacquired him on Aug. 25. The 41-year-old spent his first 12 seasons with Cleveland and more than 1 1-2 years with the Twins.
