Indian manager Terry Francona, who was banished to the clubhouse after leaving Cleveland (AP), heard a loud growl.

Bobby Bradley has banned the progressive field.

Bradley leads nine innings while Cleveland overcomes some of the brutal runs that led to insane play at third base and Francona beat the Kansas City Royals 2-1 on Friday night. came back.

Bradley rode 1-2 pitches on his 10th home run by Jake Brentz (2-2) over the middle right wall with the Indians winning the second walk-off home run at home and partying at the booth and at home . Plate.

Francona couldn’t see it live.

“Because when you come here, everything is delayed by about 8 or 10 seconds,” he said. “I rushed to the TV and Bobby was standing in the batter’s box. About two seconds later, I saw why.

“It was a very nice little surprise.”

It was a great moment for Bradley, who has shaped the Cleveland lineup since he was raised by a minor. His hero came the day after his ninth home run from Franmil Reyes with nine defeats in a row.

“At the end of the day it’s just baseball, sometimes it goes your way and sometimes it doesn’t,” said Bradley, who returned home Thursday. And unfortunately things didn’t go well with our nine wins in a row, but we never gave up. This is where we are now. It’s just the idea that you have to fight. “

James Karinchak (6: 2) won his second win over two nights and avoided the ninth double in the preliminary round.

Jorge Soler is home to the Royals, who lost 14 of 17 games when they fell below 0.500 in the worst 16 games of the season.

Cleveland got off to a great start with Triston McKenzie who hit 9 in the best 7 innings of his career.

Before Bradley’s big swing, the Indians were able to beat the 1-1 tie in 8th place but literally ran out of innings.

Daniel Johnson finished second with a slow mistake, leading the softliner from Brad Keller, a royals starter who fell between outfielders Andrew Bennetendy and Michael A. Taylor.

Caesar Hernandez continued the single, putting Johnson in third place, and that’s where the fun began.

Amed Rosario met a grounder at Royals shortstop Nicky Lopez, who captured Johnson in a rundown between home and third. Johnson lived long enough for Hernandez to finish third.

However, both were tagged by Royals all-star catcher Salvador Perez, so the bass-qualified Johnson stepped down and the third base referee James Hoy called on both runners.

Francona asked for an explanation for the strange double play. And when he didn’t like what he was hearing, Francona laid down blasphemously on Hui before leaving for the first time this season.

“There are several ways to get there, but I think you didn’t get it right,” said Francona.

“I probably said a few things that I didn’t mean, but it’s a difficult game, especially in this situation of the game,” he said.

As the piece unfolded, Keller, who only allowed one run and four hits in 7 2/3 innings, didn’t know what he was seeing.

“I think my chin was on the floor the whole time,” said one right-handed man. “I’ve played baseball the rest of my life, but I still don’t know the rules. I’ve never seen it before and I’m grateful that it happened. “

Mackenzie wiped out the Royals with just one hit. Francona, a 23-year-old who spent the yo-yo season back and forth with minors, was 85 pitches when he handed things over to the bullpen for the eighth time.

However, Emanuel Klaas was unable to defend Reed and Mackenzie’s victory. Solar broke the left sidewall with a 0-1 pitch and drew 1: 1.

Mackenzie’s solid performance was the second time in 26 games that Cleveland, whose rotation was interrupted throughout the season due to injury, gave the starter six innings.

“It was very exciting,” said Francona. “In fact, I may have injured him when he got out of the game. I hit him very hard. “

Transaction completed

The Indians bought the Seattle right-handed Damon Cassetta Stubs and made the June 10 deal that sent the first baseman Jake Bauers to the Mariners. The 21-year-old plays with an A-ball.


Santana returned home twice against the Indians on Thursday, and his first home run was against his previous team. It is currently home to 29 of the 30 active franchises. The only exception are the Dodgers, who signed him for the first time in 2004.
