Error in 10th aids wild Indians walk-off win

It was an ending no one saw coming except for Indians manager Terry Francona.

“I actually called down to the bullpen in the first and I told [bullpen coach] Brian [Sweeney], ‘Put on your seatbelts. Tell them guys to put on their seatbelts. We’re gonna figure it out.’”

The Indians were down to their final out. Baseball Savant already listed Cleveland having a 0% chance of winning the game. But Bobby Bradley and René Rivera had other plans.

After being held scoreless through the first seven frames, a two-out RBI pinch-hit single from Bradley and a two-run double from Rivera in the bottom of the ninth inning on Saturday set up an uncharacteristic walk-off error to hand the Indians a 5-4 extra-inning victory over the Mariners at Progressive Field. It marked the first time Cleveland won on a walk-off error since Aug. 21, 2017, against the Red Sox.

Yusei Kikuchi was brilliant, seven innings, three hits, no runs. He's really been coming around - last 8 starts; 50 IP, 31 H, 14 BB, 55 K, 2.70 ERA, 7 quality starts.
