Indians Get Another Walk-Off Win To Complete Four Game Sweep of M’s
It happened again today! The Cleveland Indians beat the Seattle Mariners in walk off fashion. Today Yens Gomes hit a three-run home run off of Charlie Furbush to beat the Mariners 10-8 in ten innings. It was the Indians first four game sweep of Seattle since 1981. The Mariners blew two leads late in the game, a one-run lead in both the 9th and 10th. Endy Chavez hit a pinch-hit home-run in the 9th to give the M’s a 7-6 lead but an error by closer Tom Wilhemson allowed the Indians to tie the game. Then in the top of the tenth Justin Smoak hit a home-run to give the Mariners an 8-7 lead. Furbush couldn’t get an out in the tenth and gave up the game winner. The Indians have now won 18 or their last 22 games. Three of the four wins against the Mariners this series game on walk-offs, two walk-off home-runs. The loss dropped the Mariners to 20-25 on the season. They limp to Los Angeles to open a series against the Angels starting tomorrow.
