Five Memorable Moments of the First Half for the Indians

4. Progressive Field Opening Day Walk-Off

There’s always something special about opening day, and on Tuesday, April 11th the team was able to pull off what to date has been their only home walk-off win of the season, a 2-1 win over the White Sox.

The game was a pitcher’s duel between Carlos Carrasco and James Shields, with Carrasco going 7 innings allowing a run on four hits with 7 Ks, and Shields went 5.1, allowing a run on two hits with six strikeouts.

The bullpens took over, and finally in the bottom of the 10th, the Indians were able to scratch across the game-winning run.

After back-to-back strikeouts to Abraham Almonte and Carlos Santana, Francisco Lindor drew a walk, and then Michael Brantley scorched a double to left field, and Lindor raced around third, scoring the winning run.

It’s odd to think at the halfway point it’s the only home walk-off win for the Indians, but it was one that sent the fans home happy to start the teams’ home schedule.
