Cleveland, OH (Sports Network) - The Cleveland Indians walked off in more
dramatic fashion this time. Yan Gomes' game-winning three-run homer in the
bottom of the 10th inning lifted the Tribe to a four-game sweep of the Seattle
Mariners. The Indians, who tallied walk-off wins in the first two games of
this set, rallied in the home ninth after Seattle plated a run in the top half
of the inning to send the game into extras. After the Mariners pushed another
run across to go ahead in the 10th, the Tribe roared back again. Charlie
Furbush (0-3) allowed a leadoff single to Michael Brantley before first
baseman Justin Smoak was unable to hang onto Furbush's throw on Drew Stubbs'
sacrifice bunt attempt. The count was 2-2 before Gomes belted a fastball just
over the wall in left field to give Cleveland its fifth straight victory.
Final Score: Toronto 7, Tampa Bay 5
Toronto, ON (Sports Network) - Edwin Encarnacion's bases-clearing double in
the seventh inning lifted the Toronto Blue Jays to a 7-5 win over the Tampa
Bay Rays in the opener of a three-game set. R.A. Dickey (4-5) surrendered
three runs -- two earned -- over his first three innings, but settled down and
didn't allow another run over his last five frames. He struck out five in all
and gave up four hits and four walks in the win. Melky Cabrera added an RBI
double among his two hits for Toronto, which has won five of its last seven
tilts. Evan Longoria tallied two hits, two RBI and a run scored, while Yunel
Escobar smacked a two-run homer for the Rays, who had won nine of their last
11 contests coming in.
