Cleveland, OH (Sports Network) - The Cleveland Indians squandered a four-run
lead, but rebounded to beat the Seattle Mariners in walk-off fashion for the
second straight day.
Mark Reynolds homered and finished with three RBI, as the Indians edged the
Mariners, 5-4, in the second test of a four-game set at Progressive Field.
Cleveland starter Zach McAllister was given a 4-0 lead heading to the top of
the eighth, but was removed after giving up a two-run homer to Brendan Ryan.
The Mariners then pulled even in the ninth when Raul Ibanez and Justin Smoak
hit back-to-back, two-out homers off closer Chris Perez (2-0).
Oliver Perez (1-1) didn't retire a batter in the bottom of the frame for
Jason Kipnis, who crushed the game-winning, three-run homer in the 10th inning
of Friday's series opener, singled and Asdrubal Cabrera doubled before an
intentional walk to Nick Swisher loaded the bases.
Following a pitching change, Reynolds chopped Yoervis Medina's 0-1 offering to
short. Ryan made a nice diving stop to his right and fired home. His throw
beat Kipnis home, but the Cleveland second baseman was called safe because
catcher Jesus Montero didn't have his foot on the plate.
