Finale outburst lets Guardians wrap trip with ‘heads up high’ |

From Jesus Cano:

The Guardians went 7-for-16 with runners in scoring position, avoided being swept and were set for a happy flight back to Cleveland, with an off-day on Monday waiting for them.

“I think we had a really good approach today,” Guardians manager Terry Francona said. “If you don’t stay middle, you’re going to make some easy outs, rollovers, and we stayed through the middle of the field really well.
