Game 2 of the American League Championship Series goes to the Indians in the Bronx as Cleveland defeats New York, 4-1, in 12 innings.
Cleveland reclaims the lead in the 12th on a bizarre play. After a leadoff single from Jim Thome, Enrique Wilson enters the game as a pinch-runner. Travis Fryman drops down a sacrifice bunt, but the throw from pitcher Jeff Nelson hits him and rolls past second baseman Chuck Knoblauch, who is covering first. Knoblauch, instead of picking up the ball, initiates an argument with the umpiring crew while Wilson and Fryman continue to run. Wilson scores and Fryman goes all the way to third on a throwing error on the play.
