Gomes, Kipnis lift Indians past Reds in 11
CINCINNATI— Yan Gomes drew a bases-loaded walk to drive in the tiebreaking run in the 11th inning and the Cleveland Indians beat the Cincinnati Reds 5-3 on Sunday.
Cleveland scored its first four runs on walks, and Jason Kipnis added a sacrifice fly in the 11th.
Pedro Villareal (1-3) gave up singles to Mike Aviles, Michael Bourn and Brandon Moss to open the 11th and load the bases. He then walked Gomes for force in the Indians’ go-ahead run and Kipnis followed with his sacrifice fly.
Marc Rzepczynski (2-3) pitched two-thirds of an inning to get the win, and Zach McAllister got the last two outs for his first save.
The Indians led 3-2 in the ninth, but Eugenio Suarez doubled off closer Cody Allen with two outs and scored on Jason Bourgeois’s single. The blown save was Allen’s second in 21 opportunities.
