  • Cleveland Indians chalk up meltdown to bullpen miscommunication

It's how they managed to give up SEVEN runs in the 9th inning, part of which can be blamed by a lost-in-translation moment between Indians manager Terry Francona and pitching coach Carl Willis. Willis misunderstood the message, believing he had used Otero's nickname of "O-T".

With the bases loaded and two outs in the ninth inning of a tie game, Francona wanted to make a pitching change and bring in left-handed reliever Oliver Perez to face lefty Reds slugger Joey Votto.

"That one lands squarely on me". It's a wonder why Willis even thought Francona would be asking for Otero anyway, and why he didn't double-check.

Bauer got the start for Cleveland and shut Cincinnati out on three hits, striking out 12 over eight innings.

"I made the mistake".

Francona accepted responsibility for the mix-up, telling reporters, "That one's on me". "Not that (Otero) can't get the job done; just wasn't the right match-up".


The right-hander became the second major leaguer to post seven consecutive quality starts with eight-or-more strikeouts and no homers allowed, according to the Indians.

Adam Duvall also doubled in a pair in the ninth, while Jose Peraza and Eugenio Suarez had RBI singles off Allen. The Reds were up 7-4, that would hold through the bottom of the ninth and Cincinnati won.

"Bauer was a handful for us and we ended up scoring all of our runs when he exited the game", Votto said.

White Sox relievers Jace Fry and Bruce Rondon combined to allow five runs while recording just two total outs against the Cardinals.

The Reds entered the ninth inning trailing 4-0, facing Cody Allen in a non-save situation.

Regardless of where the blame was placed, the end result was a stirring comeback win for the Reds and a night to forget for the Indians.
