Indians 8, Angels 3: Yan Gomes’ grand slam highlights Indians’ win over Angels

CLEVELAND: The Indians grounded the Los Angeles Angels late in the game for the second straight night in a 8-3 win Saturday at Progressive Field.

The basis is that he’s had value offensively though not coming through in some key situations.By one of the most well-balanced advanced metrics available, Weighted Runs Created Plus (wRC+), Santana hasn’t been his normal self...
