Indians game with Columbus suspended in 14th inning tied at 4

(Continued)

The lefty walked one lone batter and fanned three to keep the Tribe in a great position to win the contest.

While the matchup concluded in a duel between hurlers, Wednesday’s rubber game opened with quick scoring from both sides, beginning with Indianapolis plating two scores in the first inning to snag an early lead.

Although Alex Presley flew out in the contest’s first at-bat, Goedert got the offense rolling as he lined a single into right to put a runner on for Felix Pie, who promptly made the score 2-0 with a two-run mammoth homer that bounced off the scoreboard in right field.

Pie’s blast was the slugger’s third homer over his last five games, and continues his hot start to July in which he’s leading the entire IL with seven extra-base hits, ranks tied for third with three homers and slugging at the sixth-highest mark with his .710 clip.

Holding onto a two-run cushion, the IL strikeout leader Andy Oliver took the mound poised to continue his recent string of three straight quality starts. However, in a rather foreboding fashion, the southpaw issued a lead-off walk to CF Tim Fedroff, who then quickly advanced to second as Ezequiel Carrera legged out an infield single to put the first two batters of the game aboard.

Following a flyout from Chun-Hsiu Chen, Oliver loaded the bases when he plunked Jeremy Hermida, but the southpaw worked down to the final out of the inning by sitting Matt Carson down on strikes. Unfortunately, just when the Tribe appeared out of the woods, Oliver hurled four straight balls to Juan Diaz for a bases-loaded walk that sent Fedroff jogging home to bring Columbus within 2-1.

Just one batter later, Ryan Rohlinger took a similar approach as Diaz, watching four of five pitches sail by for the second bases-loaded free pass of the inning, this time bringing Carrera plateward to knot the score 2-2.
