The Cleveland Indians got a huge win Tuesday night. The Indians staged a ninth inning rally capped by Jason Giambi’s walkoff home run to defeat the Chicago White Sox 5-4 and keep their one-game lead over the Texas Rangers for the second wildcard spot in the American League. The party was on in Cleveland after the home run.
On Wednesday, the Indians got some news that spoiled the fun. Center fielder Michael Bourn has a sprained wrist.
Bourn injured the wrist sliding into second base during the fifth inning of Tuesday’s game.
“I know where we’re at in the standings and all that,” Indians manager Terry Francona told the Associated Press. “But I think we’re best served by letting him get some treatment so when he does play he can Bournie and not part Bournie, but I love his attitude. He’s a tough little kid, man.”
On the season, Bourn is batting .260, has an on base percentage of .314 and is slugging .355. He has six home runs, 48 RBI and 23 stolen bases.
