Soto has 3 RBI, Leads Indians to Win
The rain came, as predicted, but the Cleveland Indians and Minnesota Twins were able to complete their ballgame.

Cleveland right fielder Héctor Soto made his presence felt in the 7-4 Indians triumph over the Minnesota Twins. Soto was 1-1 with a home run and 3 walks. He scored 2 runs and drove in 3. The winner was Cleveland reliever Currie Micael Gauvreau, now 9-6. The loser was Chris Dula.

Had Soto not come through in the top of the eighth, the outcome might have changed. Instead, with two down, Soto hit a 3-run home run. The Indians never looked back after taking the 5-2 lead.

"We can always improve and get better, but we're feeling pretty confident after that win," said Soto.

Cleveland currently is in last place in the American League Central Division at 63-73.
