Amazingly though, the Blue Jays infielder got through the inning, without giving up the go-ahead run. He was able to get a big 6-4-3 double play to get out of a bases-loaded jam.

Cleveland did pull out their 14th straight win. In the 19th, Carlos Martinez homered off another Blue Jays infielder – Darwin Barney – to give them a 2-1 lead, which they held onto for the win.
