A tale of two moments at the Corner of Carnegie and Ontario
In one five minute span of baseball, the Cleveland Indians went from the high of being three outs away from winning their fifth game in a row, to giving up a ninth inning lead and watching the Astros fall behind the Rangers. Another Cleveland implosion. Then something funny happened. Jason Giambi stepped up to the plate and launched the biggest home run at Progressive Field in recent memory...and the Indians won. Join Jim Pete as he looks at the two players that put the entire town in their own personal roller coaster.

The IBI's Michael Goodman shares his second thoughts on an amazing come from behind win and avoid a devastating loss the final week of the season.

Giambi walk-off homer sends Tribe to biggest victory of the year
There are moments in baseball that make you believe something special is happening, especially in a pennant chase. For the Indians, their most special player just may be a 42-year old with a .181 batting average. With the Tribe trailing 4-3 with two outs in the bottom of the ninth, pinch hitter Jason Giambi took White Sox closer Addison Reed deep for a game-winning walk-off homer to give the Indians a remarkable 5-4 win.

Second Thoughts Game #155: Indians 4, Astros 1
It felt like it was October at the corner of Carneige and Ontario Saturday night. Putting up three runs in the first inning, the Indians made quick work of the Houston Astros for the 4-1 win. Scoring four runs on 16 hits in the first two games of the series, the Tribe scored four runs off Astros starter Paul Clemens through the first four innings. That was far from being the storyline of another Cleveland win though, as Indians starter Scott Kazmir continued his quest for the postseason with another brilliant performance.
