Game 2: LGT | Indians.com
The Indians took Game 1 in dramatic fashion, with Miguel Cabrera lining out to Franciscoo Lindor with the bases loaded for the final out. This seemed to take the wind out of the Tigers’ sails, as the Indians romped in Game 2 behind a line-up filled with backups. Giovanny Urshela and Roberto Perez had big early hits and the Indians never looked back. Call-ups Greg Allen and Francisco Mejia made their Major League debuts. The team was having so much fun that they stole sideline reporter Andre Knott’s microphone and provided color commentary. Even Kyle Crockett got to pitch.
