Now that’s how you win a ball game, Tyler Naquin. On Friday night, the Cleveland Indians proved yet again why they’re firmly cemented atop the AL Central division.
It all started with Jose Ramirez, who walked to the plate in the ninth with a one-run deficit. As fairytales would have it, Ramirez swatted a solo shot to right off Blue Jays closer Roberto Osuna to tie the score, offering fans a new baseball game. Then came Naquin, who proved to also be a fan of happy endings..
It was Cleveland’s first inside-the-park homerun in 100 years and only second in franchise history.
