Here’s to a great week!
Indians 4, Red Sox 3
Another walk-off win for the Tribe, with Greg Allen singling in Jose Ramirez in the 11th inning of Cleveland’s 4-3 victory. Fun times! The Indians improved to 87-68 with the win.
Four years in a row for EE.
Allen hasn’t pithed since September 5. From Paul Hoynes:
Manager Terry Francona and Allen said there is no reason for concern. He threw a bullpen session before Saturday’s win and is scheduled to pitch against the White Sox on Monday night at Guaranteed Rate Field as the Indians begin their final trip of the regular season.
“Yeah, everything is good,” said Allen on Saturday night. “We had some struggles there in August and I feel like I’ve thrown the ball a lot better in September. But it’s not only those innings in the appearances in September, but I was throwing a lot in-between appearances, just ironing stuff out.”
Relievers usually don’t throw much between appearances because they get used a lot in games. Allen felt the extra work was catching to him.
