Travis Hafner was seen taking a huge swing and also let out a bit of a battle yell as he tossed aside his bat and took a look at his huge shot that went deep into the right field seats for a grand slam. This blast managed to cap Cleveland’s five run goal in the nighth which gave the Indians a very close 5-4 win over the Blue Jays yesterday night.
Talking about the feeling after the game Hafner said “It’s awesome, there’s nothing like it.” “It’s the most fun you can have on a baseball field.” Baseball betting lines
Hafner managed to connect with the first pitch from Luiz Perez in a big way for the second walk off slam for Cleveland this season. Back in April Carlos Santana did it and beat Detroit 9-5.
This was the 12th career slam for the slugger who made Tony Sipp a winner he said “That’s as hard as I can hit it,”.
Cleveland managed to get its 20th comeback and it did this without their third baseman Lonnie Chisenhall. He had to leave after a pitch hit him on his right cheekbone in the second inning against Toronto’s starter Carlos Villanueva. The team later announced that the rookie had suffered what is called a facial contusion and will be fully examined on Friday.
The Indians had loaded their bases on one single, a walk against Frank Francisco and a double. The reliever was visibly angry and went off on media men after his loss. He had asked these men if they wanted to talk with him and when they started he approached his locker and also unleashed a long string of profanities as he walked away. Football betting lines
However, the manager for the Blue Jays John Farrell was more polite. Farrell said “That’s a gut-wrenching loss,”
The manager for the Indians Manny Acta said “That was an amazing comeback,” “Before that, it was eight of the most boring innings all season. I thought it would be a wasted night.” Baseball lines
Hafner said “He said (Perez’s) fastball had a lot of sink, so I was looking for something up,” “I wanted to try and do it early.” However when it was all said and done the Indians did put on one hell of a show.
