Reserve infielder Jose Lopez went from zero to hero in one afternoon, committing an error which would ultimately lead to a Seattle Mariners run in the fifth inning, only to hit a game-tying three-run home run in the eighth inning as well as scoring another game-tying run in the bottom of the 11th.  A Carlos Santana single would seal the deal as the Tribe came from behind twice in the same game.

Indians 6 Mariners 5: Beating The Grinder With Some Progressive Field Magic

When Eric Wedge was the manager of the Indians, I have to admit, I was a fan. I know I was in the minority, but I always liked the fact that he never got too high or too low. He was the same guy, win or lose. I look back at his time here now differently. He made the playoffs just once (2007) and had a winning record twice (2005, 2007) in seven years. He wasn’t exactly Rex Ryan...
