Walk-off win! Indians edge White Sox in extra innings
CLEVELAND (AP) — Pinch-hitter David Murphy, activated from the disabled list before the game, drove in the winning run with a bases-loaded single in the 10th inning and the Cleveland Indians defeated the Chicago White Sox 2-1 on Friday night.
Murphy, who pulled a right oblique muscle on Aug. 9, lined a 1-2 pitch to center off Ronald Belisario to score pinch-runner Chris Dickerson and give the Indians their 11th walkoff win of the season.
Yan Gomes started the inning with a triple to left off Maikel Cleto (0-1). Michael Taylor crashed into the wall trying to make the catch and the ball rolled several feet away.
Shortstop Leury Garcia finally retrieved the ball and threw it in as Gomes slid into third.
Michael Bourn was intentionally walked before Eric Surkamp issued an intentional walk to Lonnie Chisenhall that loaded the bases. Surkamp battled back from a 3-1 count to strike out Jason Kipnis before Murphy, batting for Roberto Perez, delivered.
C.C. Lee (1-1) worked out of a bases-loaded, one-out jam in the 10th.
