Indians first baseman Carlos Santana tripled in a run in the top of the ninth inning, tying Wednesday afternoon’s game against the Astros at three apiece. The two teams would combine for nearly seven scoreless innings after that.
Astros first baseman mercifully ended the game in the bottom of the 16th, lacing a walk-off two-run home run off of Cody Anderson for his third homer of the year.
