The Indians rallied for three runs in the ninth, the last of which came on Francisco Lindor’s walkoff RBI single, to beat Washington in front of 23,711 fans at Progressive Field. The win marked Lindor’s first walkoff hit.
The teams will wrap their quick two-game series with a marquee matinee pitching matchup today: Carlos Carrasco (7-3, 2.31) vs. Stephen Strasburg (13-1, 2.83). The Indians maintained their 5.5-game lead over Detroit in the AL Central.
Down, 6-4, heading to the ninth, six of seven Tribe batters reached:
- Jose Ramirez walk
- Tyler Naquin PH RBI double
- Chris Gimenez run-scoring FC-E3
- Lonnie Chisenhall walk
- Rajai Davis bunt single
- Lindor walkoff
The Tribe bullpen (Crockett, Manship, Otero, Adams and Shaw) allowed one earned run in five innings in relief of Tribe starter Danny Salazar.
