CLEVELAND — This is a moment you have to see and if you've already watched it, then watch it again: Yasiel Puig delivering a bases-loaded single off the right field wall with two outs in the 10th inning, giving the Indians a 2-1 walk off win against the Detroit Tigers.
As Puig delivered the game-winning hit, the moment his teammates rushed the field was just as magical.
The excitement radiated throughout Progressive Field as fans immediately stood up, celebrating the win with a round of applause.
“I’m feeling good because this is my first walkoff with this team, finally,” Puig told the Associated Press, exhaling. “The inning before, I told Lindor and a couple of players, ‘Hey, I’m going to finish this one with a home run.’ I didn’t get that, but I got the single to win the game.
The Indians are four games behind first-place Minnesota in the AL Central. Cleveland is a half-game back of Tampa Bay for the second wild card, AP reports.
