Second Thoughts Game #128: Astros 2, Indians 3
It was a walk-off in Cleveland as Jose Ramirez drove home Tyler Holt to seal a 3-2 victory. In a series that has been defined by a lack of defense on both sides, Danny Salazar may have been the biggest perpetrator of poor defense on the Indians' side on Saturday, as his failure to back up a play in the 3rd allowed a second run to score. Nevertheless, the IBI's John Grimm suggests that from a purely pitching perspective, Danny Salazar is becoming the non-traditional contact manager that Cleveland had hoped.

A 16th round draft pick in 2011, Merritt is having one of the best seasons in Mudcats franchise history, including before they were affiliated with the Indians. The IBI's Zachary Francis recently sat down and spoke with the talented lefty about his season...
