Cleveland Indians: Welcoming the Red Sox to town

It’s amazing if you think about the mindset the Cleveland Indians could be in right now if not for two perfect throws and a fatigued Twins closer late Sunday afternoon.

Marwin Gonzalez fended off pitch after pitch from Brad Hand in the bottom of the ninth inning of Sunday’s heart-stopper, until finally he got ahold of one and sent it to the left field wall. Ehire Adrianza nearly caught up to Luis Arraez on the base path as the two rounded third to score the tying and would-be winning runs.

But Tyler Naquin and Francisco Lindor had other plans, connecting on the first of two flawless throws in a relay that ended with Roberto Perez convincingly tagging Adrianza out at the plate and keeping the game tied.
