Bourn’s walk-off homer gives Indians 6-4 win
CLEVELAND (AP) — Michael Bourn’s two-run homer in the ninth inning gave the Cleveland Indians a 6-4 win over the Colorado Rockies on Sunday and a sweep of their three-game series.
Bourn hit an 0-1 pitch into the right-field seats off Adam Ottavino (0-2). Mike Aviles singled and took second on George Kottaras’ sacrifice before Bourn hit his second home run of the season.
Bourn raced around the bases and threw his helmet into the air as he was mobbed by his teammates at home plate. The walk-off win was Cleveland’s fourth of the season.
Scott Atchison (2-0) worked around a two-out double in the ninth by striking out Charlie Blackmon to end the inning.
Colorado completed a 2-7 road trip and has lost four straight for the first time since last September.
