MINNEAPOLIS -- After a 13-inning victory the night before, the long-shot Cleveland Indians held out hope that they could still sneak into the playoffs. They were dealt a serious setback Friday night. Trevor Plouffe singled in Danny Santana in the 10th inning to give the Minnesota Twins a 5-4, comeback victory over Cleveland, further damaging the Indians already slim playoff hopes. "It sucks. You got a lead and you end up losing," said starting pitcher Trevor Bauer, who struck out six in six innings. "We dug ourselves a hole and were in a tough position. Everything is magnified right now. All these losses, they stink." Santana led off the ninth with a single off Kyle Crockett (4-1) and advanced to third on Brian Doziers single to right-centre. Joe Mauer was intentionally walked to load the bases, and Crockett struck out rookie slugger Kennys Vargas, who homered in the game. Josh Tomlin entered the game to face Plouffe, who dropped a two-strike pitch just in front of lunging centre-fielder Michael Bourn. "Its not exactly where we want to be, wed rather be on their side. But were just trying to continue to play good baseball, not giving up," Plouffe said. "We know were out of it, but this is the time for a lot of guys to show they can play in a situation like this, against these good teams late in the season, and I think we did a pretty good job." With Minnesota trailing 4-3 in the ninth, Kurt Suzuki hit a one-out double off closer Cody Allen and was replaced by pinch-runner Eduardo Nunez. Nunez moved to third on Oswaldo Arcias single and scored to tie it when Aaron Hicks grounded into a fielders choice. It was a tough play, but shortstop Jose Ramirez had an outside shot of turning a double play. He ranged over and stabbed his glove at Hicks grounder, but couldnt reel it in and settled for the force out at second. "He did what he could with it," Allen said. "It was a well-struck ball and he laid out for it. It was unfortunate the way everything turned out, but it was still a good play." Jared Burton (3-5) stranded Michael Brantley at second base to end the top of the 10th. Brantley homered and Lonnie Chisenhall had two hits and an RBI for Cleveland, which entered the night four games out of the final AL wild-card spot. Cleveland rallied to beat Houston 2-1 on Thursday night. Oswaldo Arcia homered for Minnesota in the third off Bauer. It was Arcias fourth homer this season off Bauer. Josh Tomlin was the eighth reliever by Cleveland, which set an American League record during the game by going to the bullpen 547 times this season. Detroit and Kansas City sit atop the AL Central and play a three-game series this weekend. Cleveland needs one of those teams to sweep the other, then some help from Oakland and Seattle if they want any chance at sneaking into the playoffs. "Nobodys going to quit," Francona said. TRAINERS ROOM TWINS: All-Star closer Glen Perkins has been shut down for the season with a strain and nerve irritation in his left forearm. Twins GM Terry Ryan said Perkins should be ready in plenty of time for spring training after an off-season strengthening and maintenance program. Ryan said SS Eduardo Escobar should return from a jammed shoulder in the next couple of days. INDIANS: 2B Jason Kipnis missed the game with a sore right hamstring. Francona said Kipnis could be back for Saturdays game. OF Ryan Raburn underwent surgery on his left knee Friday to repair a lateral meniscus tear, ending his season. He hit .200 with four homers and 22 RBIs after signing a two-year, $4.85 million contract extension in the off-season.

WASHINGTON -- The Washington Capitals scored early and late in regulation before turning toward goaltender Braden Holtby, who sealed a satisfying comeback victory. Holtby had 33 saves, then blanked the Minnesota in a shootout as Washington beat the Wild 3-2 to extend its winning streak to four games. After Holtby helped squelch a Minnesota power play that extended into overtime, Nicklas Backstrom scored the only goal in the shootout to secure the Capitals fourth straight home win. Holtby outplayed Wild goalie Josh Harding, who came in with an NHL-best 1.09 goals-against average and stopped 25 shots. "He made a couple of saves that I was like, Wow, incredible," Backstrom said of Holtby. Alex Ovechkin scored a power-play goal at 8:10 of the first period on Washingtons second shot of the game, and the Capitals didnt beat Harding again until Marcus Johansson forced overtime with a blast from the right circle at 16:52 of the third period. The shot came only minutes after Harding made several outstanding saves with Washington on the power play. "I thought we did a really good job killing that, but it really put us on our heels," Minnesota coach Mike Yeo said. "After that, it seemed like we were hemmed in our end." The Wild had the extra man for the final 57 seconds of regulation and the opening 1:03 of overtime, but could not convert. After two players from each side failed to score in the shootout, Backstrom beat Harding with a wrist shot that went into the upper left corner of the net. Holtby then denied Charlie Coyle to win it. Coyle and Mikael Granlund scored in regulation for the Wild, whose three-game winning streak ended. "The result wasnt there because they got that one (goal) late," Minnesota forward Matt Cooke said. "Its frustrating. You go out and do your part and guys are blocking shots and guys are taking hits to make plays,, and the results not there.dddddddddddd At the end of the day, its about wins and losses." Granlund put Minnesota up 2-1 at 6:07 of the second period with his second goal of the season. Jason Pominville controlled a rebound on the side of the net and passed to Granlund, who sent a fluttering shot past Holtbys left shoulder. Later in the period, Washington rookie Tom Wilson broke free down the left side. Harding kept his ground and plucked the shot out of the air with his glove. The Capitals came into the game with an NHL-leading 26 goals in the second period, but in this one they went scoreless on nine shots. In the third period, however, Washington got the pivotal goal. "What I liked about the tying goal is it took a lot of hard work," Capitals coach Adam Oates said. "We fought through a lot of frustration because they were giving you nothing. It was hard to get shots to the net." The Wild outshot the Capitals 12-5 in a first period that produced one power-play goal from each team. Less than 20 seconds after Minnesotas Nate Prosser was sent to the penalty box for cross checking, Ovechkin scored from the left circle off a pass from Backstrom at 8:10. It was the third power-play goal in two games for Ovechkin, who needs only four more to break Peter Bondras franchise record of 137. Coyle scored against the leagues most effective penalty-killing unit with just over two minutes left in the period. Zach Parise got an assist on the play to extend his point-scoring streak to four games. Notes: Washington improved to 4-0 in shootouts. ... Minnesota D Keith Ballard was scratched with an upper body injury, and is also expected to miss Saturdays game in Carolina. ... Capitals F Eric Fehr was a healthy scratch for a second straight game. ... This was only the second time in the Wilds seven games in Washington that they scored more than one goal. ' ' '
