Sports

Pittsburgh (WJW) — The Cleveland Indians got their first win of the summer on Saturday night, even if it doesn’t count in the standings.

The Tribe beat the Pirates 5-3 in an Exhibition game at PNC Park in Pittsburgh (after coming back to Cleveland for spring training earlier this month, as seen in the video above). The Indians trailed 3-0 in the 8th inning when Christian Arroyo tied the game with a bases clearing double.

Yu Chang got the game-winning double in the four run eighth inning and Greg Allen added another RBI in the 9th as the Tribe came from behind for the win.

The Indians open the 2020 season on Friday at Progressive Field against the Kansas City Royals.
