Lind homers, fan escorted from game

By sstorm Published: April 10, 2009

Well, it may just the first home game of the season, but Tribe fans are already in mid-season form.

With Tribe starter Scott Lewis struggling through the fourth inning, Vernon Wells sparked a Jays rally with a one-out single. Designated hitter Adam Lind followed with a two-run, opposite-field home run to left field. Moments later a fan fired the ball back on the field and nearly hit an unsuspecting Indians player before being escorted away by police.

The ruckus didn't slow the Jays momentum one bit, however, as they knotted the score 3-3 on Kevin Millar's RBi-hit before Lewis rebounded to strike out Jose Bautista to end the threat.
