Breaking: Indians fall to Blue Jays 3-2

By Ryan Lewis Published: April 18, 2014

Final: Blue Jays 3, Indians 2

Lonnie Chisenhall led off the bottom of the ninth with a double. Bourn and Swisher then struck out before Kipnis and Santana walked to load the bases for Brantley with two outs. He grounded out to first base to end the game. 

Through eight innings: Blue Jays 3, Indians 2

The Indians' bullpen and defense gave the lead right back to Toronto. 

With a runner on first and one out, Marc Rzepczynski came on for Masterson (6 1/3, six hits, two ER, 9 Ks), and allowed singles to both hitters he faced, including the game-tying hit to Munenori Kawasaki. 

Yan Games then bounced a snap-throw to first base that allowed both runners to advance. With first base open the Indians intentionally walked Jose Bautista. Edwin Encarnacion then gave the Blue Jays a 3-2 lead with a single to center field. 

Santana had another chance to be the hero in the seventh inning. He came up with two runners on and one out but this time struck out looking. Michael Brantley then grounded out to end the inning. 

In the sixth inning: Indians 2, Blue Jays 1

Carlos Santana, who entered the game in a 1-for-28 slump and went 0-2 in his first two at-bats, gave the Indians a 2-1 lead in the sixth inning with a two-run home run to right field. He needed all of the 355 feet he hit it, but it still counts the same. 

Michael Brantley narrowly missed a home run a few pitches later but it landed a few feet foul. 

Asdrubal Cabrera followed him with a triple to the warning track in left field. 

The Blue Jays are now taking out Hutchison in favor of Steve Delabar. 

Through four innings: Blue Jays 1, Indians 0

The Blue Jays scored first after Colby Rasmus doubled off the left-field wall and advanced to third on a wild pitch by Masterson. Brett Lawrie then hit a dribbler to third base. The run probably would have scored no matter what, but Lawrie reached base as Santana hesitated to go after it and then bobbled the bare-handed attempt. 

Through three innings: Indians 0, Blue Jays 0 

Both teams threatened in the third inning but neither could get a run across. 

The Blue Jays loaded the bases against Justin Masterson in the top-half of the inning and brought up Edwin Encarnacion with two outs. Masterson struck him out, the fifth strikeout of the game for him already, on a slider. 

The Indians then had two runners on base after Nick Swisher and Jason Kipnis each singled with two outs. Carlos Santana then popped out to the catcher and slammed his bat on the ground.
