CLEVELAND (AP) With one swing Miguel Sano sent the Minnesota Twins to a doubleheader sweep and maybe a division title.

Sano's grand slam capped a five-run eighth inning and the Twins grabbed firm control of the AL Central by beating the Cleveland Indians 9-5, completing the sweep of Saturday's day-night doubleheader.

The sweep pushed the Twins 5 1/2 games ahead of the Indians in the AL Central going into the final game of the showdown series Sunday.
