CLEVELAND — Just back with the team, Indians outfielder Greg Allen struggled to find his locker and needed some help from Shane Bieber before Thursday’s game against the Minnesota Twins.

In the bottom of the ninth inning, though, Allen had no trouble finding his destination.

Allen, who was called up from Triple-A Columbus Thursday when Leonys Martin was placed on the disabled list, scored the game-winning run on Michael Brantley’s walk-off single to lift the Indians to a 5-4 win over the Twins at Progressive Field.

Allen led off the ninth with a single against Twins reliever Addison Reed (1-6) and then stole second, barely beating the throw, and pounded the ground. He advanced to third on a ground ball by Francisco Lindor before Brantley drove a single that found its way through the gap between first and second base to give the Indians (64-50) their second consecutive walk-off win over the Twins (53-61).

“[Allen] did a great job of getting to second and then Frankie did a good job of getting him over and putting me in that situation,” Brantley said. “That’s a team run right there all the way around, and thanks to those two guys, I got put in that opportunity.”

As much as Brantley’s single, Allen stealing second base was key to the Indians’ game-winning rally. Once Lindor’s ground ball allowed Allen to go to third, it forced the Twins infield to move in.

“I think it really comes down to having trust and confidence,” Allen said of the risky steal attempt. “Moreso, I think the coaching staff having the trust, the confidence in me to give me that freedom to have that green light there and give me that choice. At that point you let your instincts take over, and I was fortunate to get a decent jump. I got in by a hair.”

For the second consecutive game, the Indians blew a lead before winning it in the ninth.

The Indians took a 3-0 lead off Twins starter Jose Berrios in the second inning. Yonder Alonso started it off by belting his 20th home run, a solo shot to right field, to become the fourth Indians hitter to reach the 20-homer plateau this year, joining Jose Ramirez (33), Lindor (29) and Edwin Encarnacion (25).

Later in the inning, Lindor ripped a two-out, two-run single to right field to extend the Indians’ lead to 3-0.

Two innings later, Lindor yanked an RBI double to right field to push the lead to 4-0. It was Lindor’s second consecutive three-RBI game, following his walk-off, three-run homer in Wednesday’s game.

The Twins, though, fought back against Indians starter Corey Kluber. Max Kepler led off the fifth inning with a double and came around to score on a sacrifice fly by Jake Cave.

An inning later, the Indians’ lead was erased. Bobby Wilson and Eddie Rosario each singled and Jorge Polanco crushed a three-run home run to right-center field to tie it 4-4.

In relief of Kluber, Brad Hand struck out two in a 1-2-3 eighth and Andrew Miller (2-3) followed with a 1-2-3 ninth, striking out one, to set the stage for another dramatic victory.
