A little late posting this one, but the Indians did beat the Royals in extra innings last night. The Indians will be extra innings experts before the end of this season if the current trend holds. Unfortunately their bullpen will also be “experts” or maybe just tired. Still, nice to come out on the winning end.

Also there were a lot of fireworks with bean balls and ejections and Shin Soo Choo getting angry. Jack Hannahan and Jeanmar Gomez had his back. Manny Acta also hit the showers early because Gomez hit someone after warnings. I could get used to the sight of Sandy Alomar as manager…
