The Dominican contributed Cleveland’s decisive score against the White Sox in an extra inning after a daring previous action by batter, Delino DeShields.
Cleveland Indians achieved an agonizing and thrilling victory during Sunday night action, defeating Chicago White Sox in extra inning and with a daring play by the batter.
The 4-4 equality remained a mystery on the scoreboard until Delino DeShields came up with a simple touch instead of shaking the ball. The person responsible for running at full speed to cross the base and score was the Dominican José Ramírez, who arrived thousandths before the ball and unleashed the celebration in Ohio.

The Baní-born had reached third base in the last out of the ninth inning and was there, ready and outlined to make the final score. And he did it in a curious way, after an unexpected action even by Illinois’ own, who although they moved the ball quickly, could not deactivate Ramírez’s run
In this way, the Indians have a record of 10 wins and 7 losses, behind the Minnesota Twins (10-6) in the Central division of the American League.
