• Escobar's Homer in 10th Gives Twins 1-0 Win

    Summary of 3 articles · Updated May 5, 2014
    Escobar homered on Cleveland closer John Axford 's second pitch of the 10th, giving the Minnesota Twins a 1-0 win over the slumping Indians. For Escobar, it was a chance to make up for a missed opportunity in his first at-bat. Coming on to replace Pedro Florimon in the seventh inning, Escobar had two runners on, but Bryan Shaw got Escobar to ground out, ending the threat. Unfortunately for Kyle Gibson, Escobar's tater didn't arrive in time to reward his solid outing with a win. Minnesota's Kyle Gibson allowed only two hits in seven scoreless innings, and Cleveland's Zach McAllister gave up five hits while blanking the Twins over 6 2-3 shutout innings. It's a shame that my performances have kind of taken precedence over a great hitting performance by George and outstanding pitching performances by Kluber and Zach."
