CLEVELAND (AP) — Chris Perez has been in the middle of more than his share of wild, dramatic finishes.
Nothing, though, will top his latest outing.
This time, the umpires saved him.
“Luckily, we were on the right side of it this time,” Cleveland’s colorful closer said.
Adam Rosales’ apparent game-tying home run off Perez with two outs in the ninth inning was ruled a double — even after three umpires reviewed it on TV — and the Indians escaped with a 4-3 win over the Oakland Athletics on Wednesday night, Cleveland’s ninth win in 10 games.
