Ramirez’s Hit In 9th Gives Indians Win Over Astros

CLEVELAND (AP) — Rookie Jose Ramirez’s ninth-inning single lifted the Cleveland Indians to a 3-2 win over the Houston Astros on Saturday night.

Pinch-hitter Tyler Holt started the inning with a single off Jake Buchanan (1-3). After Roberto Perez moved Holt to second with a sacrifice, Michael Bourn walked. Buchanan’s wild pitch moved the runners to second and third before Ramirez lined a 3-2 pitch past third base for the win.

The Indians have 10 walk-off wins this season. Cody Allen (5-3) struck out two in a perfect ninth.

Danny Salazar continued Cleveland’s run of impressive starting pitching, allowing two runs with seven strikeouts in six innings. The starters have posted a 1.85 ERA (15 earned runs in 73 innings) in 12 games since Aug. 9.
