The Minnesota Twins and Cleveland Indians played an exciting game at Target Field.

Cleveland right fielder Nick Williams had a terrific game, but it still wasn't enough to get his team a win. Williams went 4-5 with a double and 3 singles. He drove in 2 runs, even as Minnesota beat the Indians, 4-3. Williams was named the player of the game despite the loss. The save went to Julián Rivera, his 33rd this season.

Gary Copeland, who led the AL in batting average with .330 in 2016, chipped in for Minnesota with a solo home run in the bottom of the fifth. For the game, the first baseman had 2 hits in 3 at-bats with 1 home run, 1 single, 1 run scored, and 1 RBI.

"I like to lead by example," said Copeland. "I'm glad I could contribute to a good win."

Their 66-72 record puts the Twins third in the American League Central.
