Andres Gimenez' walkoff home run completes Guardians' rally past Twins

Tyler Thornburg couldn't hold a 3-1 lead, giving up two runs in both the eighth and ninth innings



Andrés Giménez of the Guardians celebrated hitting a walkoff two-run home run off Twins reliever Tyler Thornburg at Progressive Field on Thursday.

CLEVELAND - Before Thursday's game against Cleveland, the culmination of eight meetings in 10 days against the Guardians, Twins manager Rocco Baldelli noted how he rarely speaks to his team after a loss, preferring to let players lead those discussions.

But a couple of hours later - and for the second consecutive day - the Twins hobbled out of Progressive Field while the Guardians raucously celebrated a walkoff home run, this time a two-run shot by Andres Gimenez in the bottom of the ninth, which earned him an ice shower from a Gatorade cooler.

And Baldelli had to stage a rare manager intervention after the 5-3 loss.
