The Cleveland Indians weren't going to be denied their 14th win in a row folks. They worked over-time in the Rogers Centre, in Toronto, Ontario The home of the Blue Jays. But in the end, in a game that would last for 19 innings, the Cleveland Indians won their 14th game in a row.
This game lasted, 19 innings, the Tribe would go through 9 pitchers. The Blue Jays would have position players pitching in the later innings. The game lasted more than 6 hours. Trevor Bauer who was supposed to get the start in Toronto in game-2, came in for relief and threw for 5 innings.
The Indians had plenty of opportunities to score more runs. They could bring in runners from 3rd base with only one-out. They had the bases loaded in the 18th inning and couldn't manage to bring a guy home.
Finally, it was Carlos Santana who hit a home run in the 19th inning to push the Tribe past the Blue Jays 2-1. The Indians had to work for this one folks. Good things come to those who wait, and the Indians made people wait a long-time to see the 14th win in a row.
With the win, the Indians picked up another game over the Royals in the A/L Central, the first place Cleveland Indians are now out in front by 7-games. The Tribe will face the Blue Jays again this afternoon.
The Game starts at 1:07 e.s.t.. Who knows how long this one will last. Can the Tribe make it 15 in a row? We shall soon see, but in the mean time, congratulations to the entire Cleveland Indians team......
