Despite the fact that the Indians didn’t make any trades that brought Major League starters to the club, they’re firmly in the Wild Card race. Thanks to Michael Brantley’s walk-off home run against the Rangers today, the Tribe are currently three games back.
Of course, the Indians wouldn’t have been in position at all without some heroics by David Murphy against his old club in the ninth inning. With the Tribe trailing by two, Murphy bombed a game-tying shot.
