Happy Sunday, everyone!
Indians 5, Red Sox 4
A roller coaster of emotions ended after 11 innings with the good guys on top 5-4, and Michael Brantley notched his sixth career walk-off with a single to center field. Thanks, Doctor!
Dan Otero, known mostly for inducing ground balls, has a bit of a gopher problem and he’s not quite sure how to fix it. Which is not what you want to hear.
His leg didn’t fall off, so I’m counting it as a win. I’m excited to see what he’ll do on Tuesday. Keep it up, Bauer!
The Indians made history on Saturday night with the help of Mike Clevinger. Here’s to some more history over the next month.

- Mariners will miss the playoffs for the seventeenth year in a row.
- Gooooooooooo Twins!:
The 10 walk-off losses by homer for the #MNTwins is an all-time record, according to @sfgwire. The 2010 St. Louis Cardinals set the previous record w/ 8.— Dan Hayes (@DanHayesMLB) September 22, 2018
Twins would have to lose their final 2 road games with walk-offs to tie all-time mark for most walk-off losses in a season.
