Reds 4, Indians 3: 12 Walk-Off Thoughts on Cody Allen’s streak, a win for a second, Carlos Santana

Here are 12 Walk-Off Thoughts after the Indians’ 4-3 loss to the Cincinnati Reds, which included  a two-hour, one-minute rain delay. 1. For a split second, the Indians won Wednesday night’s game 3-2.

It appeared as as though Cody Allen had converted his 14th straight save opportunity of the...

Indians 8, Twins 3: Terry Francona shuffles lineup, Jason Kipnis responds with two home runs in victory

CLEVELAND: Offensive slumps within a baseball season can be infuriating for teams. Breaking out of them, even for a day, can be like a breath of fresh air.

Manager Terry Francona decided to shake up the lineup prior to Sunday’s game, sliding Jason Kipnis into the leadoff spot and slotting Carlos Santana fifth. That move paid immediate dividends, and in turn made Francona’s move look pretty smart. “Good players can do that,”...
