Brian Dozier's home run gives Twins a win, reduces magic number to 1 over Angels

Dozier launched Bryan Shaw’s cut fastball over the right field wall for a three-run homer in the eighth to bring the Twins back from a two-run deficit.

Francisco Lindor gave Cleveland a 5-4 with a sacrifice fly in the sixth, and Edwin Encarnacion added a solo homer in the seventh off Ryan Pressly to make it 6-4.

Up by as many as 20, the Lynx allowed the Sparks a chance to win at the buzzer but strong defense prevented a shot, and Minnesota walked away with a two-point victory to tie the series.

In what could have been her last game at Williams Arena, former Gophers' women's basketball player Lindsay Whalen scored 14 points and gave an all-out effort so many have come to expect over the years.

Brian Dozier launched an 0-1 cut fastball into the seats in right field in the eighth inning for a three-run homer to put the Twins ahead in Cleveland and on the doorstep of a postseason berth.
