Tribe falls to Twins 4-3 after decisive 7th inning; three takeaways

1. The collapse

When Cody Allen entered to pitch the seventh, Cleveland was holding on to a narrow 3-2 lead. But as has been typical of Allen lately, he ran into some lethal traffic.

After issuing two walks and giving up a single to Eddie Rosario (all with two outs), Allen gave up a two-run RBI single to Robbie Grossman. While Miguel Sano was caught advancing on the play to end the inning, Grossman’s hit still gave Minnesota a 4-3 lead as the Indians headed to the bottom of the seventh.

Starter Adam Plutko earned a no-decision after going 5 1/3 innings and giving five hits, two earned runs, two walks, and striking out five.
