The Cleveland Indians returned to Progressive Field for their home opener, and they won it in 10 innings. The Tribe got some good pitching from Carlos Carrasco, who pitched 7 innings. Then it was Miller, Allen, and Shaw. They had 12 strike out and didn't walk anyone.
The fireworks for the Tribe came in the first inning when Franciso Lindor hit another home run. The Indians took an early lead and held it until the 5th inning. That's when Frazier got the White Sox on the board, hitting a home-run of his own.
This was a battle of good pitching folks. The game would go into the 10th inning, before the Indians were able to score another run.
That game-winning run came off the bat of Michael Brantley, and would score none other than Lindor, to get the walk-off win. I can't tell you how good it is to see Brantley back playing for the Indians.
This guy is Mr. Consistency. He always seems to come through with the bat, and his defense is very solid in left field as well. He is an all around player, who does his job year-after-year and never complains.
With the win the Indians move to 4-3 on the season and are 1-0 at home. Lets hope they can continue to win, and can build a big lead in the A.L. Central.
Bruce Wood, from the Morning Wood informs me that Lindor is now tied in the league with homers at 4 thus far. This kid is something special folks......
