Indians Survive Extra Frames in Arlington, Top Rangers in 11 Innings 9-8; Three Takeaways

first_imgThe start of the second half began for the Indians on Friday night in Arlington against the Rangers, and it didn’t exactly goes as the script might have been written.It looked like the Indians were ready to suffer yet another huge loss after Cody Allen allowed two homers with two outs in the 9th to allow the game to even up at eight, but after an amazing escape by Zach McAllister in the 10th, the team did enough to get a run in the 11th to secure the win.McAllister got the win to improve to 1-2 on the season, and Dan Otero got the save for the Indians as the team had to pull out seven arms from the pen, including both new arms acquired from the Padres.No matter, it was a win and the Tribe will take it, just their second extra inning win of the season, as they move to 53-43 on the season and will be back at it Saturday night in Arlington.
