Rank Relief: Cleveland goes Cleveland

Shaw hides his face after Hosmer ties the game with a double

The Cleveland Indians had been having a fairly nice year compared to expectations.  After today they are trailing the Royals by a half game.  It looked like Cleveland was in line for a win after Carlos Carrasco worked 7 shutout innings.  The 8th inning proved to be a little trickier.  After putting a man on second, Carrasco exited, leaving Bryan Shaw to shut the door.  He did not.  An Eric Hosmer double tied the game.  And then in the 9th Cleveland goes Cleveland by giving up the winning run on a wild pitch – courtesy of Matt Albers.  Not a great way to leave the field.  Lets detail the mess.
