The Indians made a valiant comeback late after trailing 6-1, but they came up short when Tony Abreu singled home Mike Moustakas in the top of the 14th as the Indians dropped the second game of the series 7-6. The Indians had a couple of painful innings where they should have been able to push across the winning run, including in the 12th when Casey Kotchman grounded into a double play with one out and the runners on the corners. Even worse, the Tribe loaded the bases with nobody out in the 14th and were unable to push across the tying run. Jeanmar Gomez pitched lousy in three innings, allowing a six-run third, but the bullpen pitched 10 scoreless innings before Scott Maine gave the winning run up in the 14th.
