CLEVELAND - The energy was palpable at Progressive Field after Francisco Lindor lifted every single fan off their seat and into the air in jubilation after his walk-off home run Wednesday night.
The fans and the players celebrated like it was October.
With two outs in the ninth, Lindor connected for a three-run homer. And all of sudden, his teammates jumped from the dugout to welcome him at home plate in a warm embrace with Gatorade, and yes, even baby powder.
Indians pitcher Carlos Carrasco had too much fun emptying an entire bottle of baby powder on Lindor. The showstopping homer was Lindor's 29th home run this season.
