Two-out walk to Jose Ramirez bites Chris Sale as the Indians go up 2-1 after Mike Napoli's triple; Ramirez worked Sale for 10 pitches, getting three balls on sliders. Great AB with big repercussions.

Todd Frazier on Chris Sale: "Those lanky guys will get you. His arm just spins every which way and – boom! -- it's 96 or 89. He's mixing his speeds really well this year. That's the sign of a great pitcher."

Robin Ventura on getting to watch Chris Sale pitch : "There is a guilty pleasure to it."

That collision between Mike Moustakas and Alex Gordon in foul ground in The Cell was scary, especially with Gordon snapping his neck on the tarp as he fell.
