CLEVELAND — Drew Stubbs’ RBI double with one out in the 10th inning lifted the Cleveland Indians to their fifth straight victory, 7-6 over the Minnesota Twins tonight.

Stubbs, who had four hits, drove a 1-0 pitch from Casey Fien off the wall in left-center to give Cleveland its first five-game winning streak since winning seven in a row from April 26-May 3, 2011.

Mike Aviles started the rally with a leadoff single off Fien (1-2). Pinch-hitter Ezequiel Carrera, claimed off waivers from Philadelphia on Thursday, moved Aviles to second with a sacrifice. Stubbs, who had two singles and two doubles, then drove in the game-winner.

Chris Perez (1-0) pitched a scoreless 10th for Cleveland.
