WILD, WACKY, WALKOFF
» The Clevelanders (34-27, 2nd, -4.5G) posted their fifth walk-off
win of 2021, besting Seattle by a score of 5-4 in 10 innings on
Saturday afternoon at Progressive Field…Cleveland has won 22
of 36 & 26 of last 42 since April 25, including 4 straight at home.
» The victory marked Cleveland’s first of the season when
trailing after 8 innings, as the club was down 4-0 until CESAR
HERNANDEZ broke the drought with a solo HR in the bottom of
the 8th…Cleveland staged a pivotal 3-run rally in the 9th that began
with a pair of two-out walks by pinch-hitter BRADLEY ZIMMER
& JOSH NAYLOR; pinch-hitter BOBBY BRADLEY then laced
an RBI-single to beat the right-side shift and put runners on the
corners, setting the scene for RENE RIVERA’s game-tying 2-run
double off the LF wall after falling into an 0-2 count…Cleveland
loaded the bases in the 10th with AMED ROSARIO’s single that
moved [Designated Runner] Hernandez to third, followed by an
intentional walk issued to JOSÉ RAMÍREZ; Hernandez scored the
winning run on a tapper back to the mound by HAROLD RAMIREZ,
as Paul Sewald’s errant force attempt throw pulled Tom Murphy
far enough away from home plate to allow for the sliding Cesar.
» Starter TRISTON McKENZIE walked 4 of the 6 batters he
faced before a quick 1st-inning hook (0.2IP, 0H, 1R-ER, 4BB, 32
pitches), but Cleveland managed to escape with just the single run
allowed on the bases-loaded walk…Jake Fraley hit a two-run HR
off PHIL MATON in the 3rd, while Dylan Moore added a solo shot
off BLAKE PARKER in the 7th…JAMES KARINCHAK earned his
third relief win with a pair of K’s in a scoreless 10th.
