CLEVELAND: cheap Francisco Lindor jersey watched his hit squirt into the outfield and then danced his way down the first base line before being engulfed by a wave of elated teammates.
Three outs from defeat, the Indians jerseys pulled out an unlikely victory that felt bigger than one win.
Lindor pushed an RBI mlb jerseys from china single through Washington’s drawn in infield with one out in the ninth inning, and Cleveland rallied for three runs in its final at bat to stun closer Jonathan Papelbon and the Washington Nationals jerseys 7 6 on Tuesday night in a matchup of first place teams with sights on October.
Down two runs and in danger of their losing streak reaching a season high four games, the Indians jerseys rallied against Papelbon (2 4), who did not get an out before he was pulled by manager Dusty Baker.
“That’s an ugly way to lose one,” Baker said. “I’m at a loss for words.”
With the bases loaded, Lindor fisted his hit into right field to cap an inning that included a clutch double by rookie pinch hitter cheap Tyler Naquin jersey, a pair of well executed bunts by the Indians jerseys, a throwing error by Nationals jerseys first baseman cheap Ryan Zimmerman jersey and another big highlight by Lindor, one of the AL’s rising stars.
“You never know,” said Indians jerseys backup catcher cheap Chris Gimenez jersey, whose hustle to first might have rushed Zimmerman’s throw.
cheap Bryan Shaw jersey (2 4) got two outs in the ninth and picked up the win as Cleveland won its first home game since July 10. The Indians jerseys had been on the road since then because of the All Star break and the Republican National Convention.
“It’s huge,” Lindor said. “We’ve been on the road for a while. It’s nice to be home with our families, get that little off day and be in this clubhouse. It changes everything a little bit.”
cheap Anthony Rendon jersey hit a two run homer and cheap Wilson Ramos jersey added a solo shot for the NL East leading Nationals jerseys, just 4 6 since the All Star break.
At New York, cheap Bartolo Colon jersey pitched three hit ball for seven sharp innings as New York overcame another home run by cheap Jedd Gyorko jersey to beat St. Louis 3 1 for a doubleheader split.
Gyorko homered in both ends and has connected seven times in nine games. His two run shot helped the Cardinals jerseys win the opener 3 2.
In other NL games, cheap Ichiro Suzuki jersey made his first start in five games and went 1 for 5, giving him 2,997 career hits, as Miami beat Philadelphia 5 0, Milwaukee beat Arizona 9 4 and San Francisco had a 9 7 win over Cincinnati.
At Toronto, cheap Devon Travis jersey scored the winning run on a wild pitch as the Blue Jays jerseys rallied for three runs in the 12th inning to beat San Diego 7 6.
Travis drew a 14 pitch walk to load the bases, bringing Paul Clemens on in relief of Carlos Villanueva (1 2). Clemens walked cheap Jose Bautista jersey to make it 6 5 before cheap Josh Donaldson jersey tied it with a fielder’s choice grounder.
With cheap Edwin Encarnacion jersey batting, a pitch bounced away from catcher Derek Norris, and Travis slid in just ahead of the tag as his teammates stormed out of the dugout to celebrate.
The Yankees jerseys had a 6 3 win over the Houston Astros jerseys, the White Sox jerseys beat the Cubs jerseys 3 0 in the Chicago showdown, and Colorado ended the AL leading Baltimore Orioles jerseys five game winning streak with a 6 3 defeat.
