MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Yan Gomes had three hits including a home run, rookie pinch-hitter Tyler Holt hit a go-ahead two-run double in the sixth inning, and the Cleveland Indians rallied to beat the Minnesota Twins 7-5 on Tuesday night.

Oswaldo Arcia homered in his third straight game for Minnesota, capping a five-run first where Joe Mauer and Kennys Vargas also drove in runs.

However, Indians starter Trevor Bauer settled down and retired the next 14 batters before coming out for Kyle Crockett (3-0), who got the final out in the fifth and one in the sixth.

Cody Allen - the last of seven Indians relievers to appear in the game - pitched the ninth for his 16th save in 17 chances.

Holt, recalled from Triple-A Columbus before the game, got his two-out hit off reliever Brian Duensing (3-3) to put the Indians up 6-5 with his first two career RBIs.
