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

3. Another Lindor milestone

Even with the loss, Francisco Lindor added another season accolade. In the first inning he stole second base recording his 20th steal of the season. He joins Jose Ramirez as the second Tribe player to reach the 20-homer, 20-stolen base milestone this year. They are just the second pair of Indians teammates ever to do so in nearly four decades (Bobby Bonds and Toby Harrah, 1979).

The pair also become the first pair of infield teammates in Major League Baseball history to hit 25 or more homers and steal 20 or more bases in the same season.

In the first inning, Lindor also scored his 109th run of the season. He still leads MLB, and now has the most runs scored in a single season by an Indians player since Grady Sizemore scored 118 in 2007.
