Gomes took an 11th inning 0-1 pitch from Texas' Alex Claudio back up the middle to score Lonnie Chisenhall. As Chisenhall crossed the plate, the entire Indians bench emptied on to the Progressive Field diamond to tackle the catcher as if it were a 1-on-The World rugby match.
It was a much-needed win for a team struggling to beat elite opponents, and one that is in the thick of a tight race among AL Central rivals. The Tribe now sits 2.5 games back of the Central-leading Kansas City Royals with the two teams locking horns for a four game slate to close out the week.
