Indians top Mud Hens

INDIANAPOLIS -- The Tribe jumped out to a four-run lead in the sixth inning, but nearly saw its advantage disappear as the tying run reached third with two outs in the ninth, before All-Star closer Vic Black capped off a phenomenal 4.0-inning bullpen effort to save the Indianapolis Indians (70-54) 6-5 win over the Toledo Mud Hens (53-71) on Sunday night at Fifth Third Field. The victory, coupled with a Louisville loss, lowers the Tribe’s Magic Number to clinch the International League West Division to just 11.

The Triple-A Indians had apparently been taking notes from their parent club in Pittsburgh as the Tribe put Sunday’s outcome in the hands of its equivalent of the Pirates’ “Shark Tank” bullpen. Indianapolis called upon three relievers to shut down a powerful Mud Hens lineup through the final 4.0 innings, including inserting the first bullpen arm into a bases-loaded, no-out jam in the sixth.

With a 6-2 lead in the bottom of the sixth inning, Indians starter RHP Brandon Cumpton (W, 5.0 IP, 7 H, 4 ER, 3 BB, 5 SO) was initially slated to pitch through frame. However, after the right-hander allowed three straight hits and a bases-loaded walk that trimmed the Tribe’s edge to 6-3, the Tribe was forced to summon RHP Brooks Brown (Hold, 2.0 IP, SO) from the bullpen with three men on and no outs.

Dufner holds off Furyk at PGA

PITTSFORD, N.Y. (AP) — Jason Dufner walked off the 18th green, after casually pumping his fists in what passed for a raucous celebration. There was a familiar face waiting for him.

The last time they met in this situation, it was Keegan Bradley accepting the Wanamaker Trophy.

This time, it belonged to Dufner.

Granted, it was two years later than it should have been. That only made it sweeter.
