Cody Allen open to changing roles

Allen, the Indians' closer for the last three years, says he's open to pitching in a different role if the team lands a big-name reliever before the deadline. "I'm totally fine with it," Allen said. "I have no reservations. We talked about a few different things just to make sure everyone is on the same page."

Indians' comeback ends dubious streak

Francisco Lindor's walk-off single topped an Indians' comeback over the Nationals in which Cleveland trailed 5-2 in the seventh inning. Entering Tuesday, the Tribe had lost each of their last 95 games when down by at least three runs in the seventh or later, the third-longest active streak of this type behind the Brewers (156 games) and D-backs (129), the Elias Sports Bureau notes.
