Jim Thome gave Cleveland fans one more memory, and so did Carlos Santana, whose pinch-hit homer leading off the bottom of the ninth gave the Indians a 6-5 victory over the Minnesota Twins on Friday night.
Thome went 3 for 4 with three RBIs, including a two-run homer, the 604th of his career, on a night he was honored in pregame ceremonies.

The slugger accepted a trade from Minnesota on Thursday night to return to the Indians, who are hoping their career leader in home runs can help them catch first-place Detroit in the AL Central.
CLEVELAND (AP) — Someone changed the number plate over Justin Verlander’s locker from 35 to 100, and there was an iced champagne bottle sitting on a shelf next to his duffel bag.

CLEVELAND (AP) — Sharp from his first pitch, Ervin Santana came full cycle against the Cleveland Indians.

Hafner hit the first pitch from Luis Perez (1-2) deep into the right-field seats for Cleveland’s second walkoff slam of the season. Carlos Santana also did it to beat Detroit 9-5 on April 29.
CLEVELAND (AP) — Injured Indians designated hitter Travis Hafner is set to take batting practice for the first time since going on the disabled list.
Hafner, who has been sidelined since May 20 with a strained side muscle, will take batting practice Friday with his teammates in New York before the Indians open a four-game series at Yankee Stadium. Manager Manny Acta said Thursday that Hafner could soon be sent out on a rehab assignment in the minors.
