Cody Allen didn’t get credit for a win or a save Thursday night. He did record the biggest out of the Cleveland Indians’ 4-3 victory over the Chicago Cubs.
Following a rain delay of 1 hour and 16 minutes in the fifth inning, Indians manager Terry Francona went with his closer to work out of a bases-loaded jam and the score tied 3-all.
Francona’s move paid off and the Indians bounced back from Wednesday’s 17-0 drubbing.
Rookie Giovanny Urshela‘s seventh-inning single drove in the go-ahead run for the Indians and Zach McAllister (2-2) pitched 1 1/3 innings while Bryan Shaw recorded the final four outs for his first save.
W: Zach McAllister (2-2)
L: Travis Wood (3-3)
S: Bryan Shaw (1)
HR: Kyle Schwarber (1, 5th inning off Salazar 1 on, 1 Out)
