Major League Baseball returns to legendary Hiram Bithorn Stadium

In April of 2018, the division rival Cleveland Indians and Minnesota Twins faced off in a memorable two-game series in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Still reeling from the destruction of Hurricane Maria, the two teams gave back to the community while on the island through community service, relief effort donations, and children's hospital visits. The teams split the series - each team winning one game - while Puerto Rico natives Francisco Lindor and Jose Berrios shined in front of their hometown crowd.

Highlights

Indians win series opener

In the opening game of the series, Indians' pitcher Corey Kluber silenced the Twins bats - giving up one run over 6 2/3 innings. On the offensive side, the Indians' bats erupted for four home runs.

Lindor's big home run

With his family watching from the stands, Puerto Rico native and Indians All-Star shortstop Francisco Lindor smashed a two-run home run to break the scoreless tie in the series opener.

Twins walk-off in series finale

Late inning dramatics were the theme of the series finale. After home runs from both teams in the 14th inning, the Twins finally broke the tie two innings later when Ryan LaMarre singled home the winning run.
