Morneau’s sac fly loses it for Tribe in extra innings

Justin Morneau delivered a sacrifice fly in the bottom of the 10th inning off Tribe reliever Guillermo Mota as the Twins beat the Indians 6-5 Tuesday night. Cliff Lee and the Indians fell behind 4-0 early but with the help of a Grady Sizemore double and an Eduardo Perez two-run homer, they took a 5-4 lead. The lead quickly vanished, however, as the Twins tied it up in bottom of the 6th. Lee gave up five runs in as many innings and the Indians touched up Johan Santana for four runs in seven innings.

Cabrera, Sauerbeck, and Betancourt did a great job shutting out the Twins in four innings of relief work for the Tribe. However, Mota struggled again as he had another rough appearance. Mota walked Torii Hunter in the 10th and it came back to haunt him.
