CLEVELAND (AP/WJW) — Tyler Chatwood forced in the tying run with his fourth straight walk in another wild outing.

Then José Ramírez followed with a game-ending sacrifice fly and the Cleveland Indians rallied for two runs in the seventh inning without a hit to beat the Toronto Blue Jays 6-5 and gain a doubleheader split.

The Blue Jays led 4-0 in the sixth inning of the nightcap of the twin-bill of seven-inning games under pandemic rules.

In the first game of a doubleheader, Teoscar Hernández and Rowdy Tellez homered in the fourth inning off Aaron Civale and the Toronto Blue Jays defeated the Cleveland Indians 4-1.

Winning pitcher Ross Stripling allowed one run and two hits in five innings.

Josh Naylor homered for Cleveland’s only run.  

The teams played through rain and wind gusts of 45 mph Friday night before the game was finally called in the bottom of the seventh with Toronto winning 11-2. The Indians postponed Saturday’s game due to high winds, causing the doubleheader.

The Indians have another double header tomorrow against the Chicago White Sox starting at 3:05 p.m.
