In the 19th inning, the Cleveland Indians broke the 1–1 tie that had persisted since the sixth inning to beat the Toronto Blue Jays, 2–1, on Carlos Santana’s leadoff home run in the top of the frame.

After 17 innings, the game became the longest of the 2016 season and allowed the Indians to set a franchise record winning streak with their 14th straight victory.

Infielders Ryan Goins and Darwin Barney pitched for the Blue Jays, and Barney ultimately gave up the home run that broke the tie.

Trevor Bauer, who was scheduled to start on Saturday, threw five innings of relief for the Indians and earned the win.


Santana scored both of the Indians’ runs after hitting a leadoff double in the third inning and scoring on a single by Jason Kipnis.

The game lasted six hours and 13 minutes.
