CLEVELAND — Indians manager Terry Francona was more relieved than anything after Sunday's 3-2 victory over the Blue Jays.
Jose Ramirez hit a two-run homer off Brett Cecil in the eighth inning, and Cleveland rallied to win the series between AL division leaders.
"We won two out of three, and I think we had the lead for like 10 minutes," Francona said.
The series featured three one-run games, large crowds and a playoff-like atmosphere.
"There's no feeling that I can think of like that," Francona said. "Your heart is in your throat but you like it. It's agony, but it's also awesome."
Tyler Naquin's walkoff inside-the-park home run gave Cleveland a 3-2 victory Friday, and the Blue Jays won 6-5 Saturday.
