There was quite a swing of emotions Wednesday night for Indians shortstop Francisco Lindor. With the Tribe leading 3-2 in the fifth, Lindor fielded a double-play grounder up the middle--but hesitated before heading to second for the force out--he was a step late and then compounded the miscue by throwing wildly to first. It allowed two runs to score on the play and led to one more Rangers run, turning that Tribe lead into a 5-3 deficit.
Lindor made up for it immediately with a solo home run in the sixth to make it 5-4...but he got the ultimate redemption in the ninth, launching a grand slam to cap off a 5-run rally giving the Tribe a 9-6 win.
"It felt awesome," Lindor said on Sports Time Ohio after the game. "I wasn't going to sleep right if I didn't do something to help the team win."
