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.
