Game Notes: The Indians won their final game of the regular season, while also producing one of the craziest box scores ever. Jeff Larish played eight positions, including pitching in the seventh inning. The game was called early, which gave Larish the save. Jose Diaz, a relief pitcher who weighs 350 pounds, was moved over to second base in the bottom of the seventh. Diaz led off in the eighth and reached on a two base error. He then stole third base, and scored on a Chase d’Arnaud single. About the only normal thing in this game was that Chad Qualls made a rehab appearance, striking out the side.
