Updated:

 

CLEVELAND (AP) -- Tsuyoshi Nishioka's sacrifice fly scored the go-ahead run in the ninth inning and the Minnesota Twins rallied for a 7-5 victory over Cleveland, sending the Indians to their 11th straight loss.
   Minnesota scored three times off All-Star closer Chris Perez (0-4), who blew his second save opportunity in three days.
   The Indians led 5-1 after six innings, but two errors in the seventh and another in the ninth helped Minnesota rally for its fifth win in six games and seven straight victories over Cleveland.
   The Indians matched their second-longest skid, having dropped 11 straight on four occasions, most recently Sept. 13-24, 2009. Cleveland, which hasn't won since July 26, has been outscored 95-36 in the streak.
   Tyler Robertson (1-0) pitched two innings for his first major league win. Glen Perkins pitched the ninth for his seventh save.
