Guttin' it out.

The Indians won tonight 5-4, after being down 4-1 after six innings. There were lots of heroes. Franklin Guiterriez and Victor Martinez each homered to drag the Indians back into the game, and then Casey Blake cranked the first pitch he saw from David Riske over the wall to win the game in the bottom of the ninth. Rafael Betancourt and Joe Borowski worked a scoreless inning each to give the good guys a chance for late inning heroics.

That was exactly the kind of tough win this team needed to get ready for the playoffs.

Their magic number is now 9.
