Yan Gomes drove in four runs in Saturday's 7-2 win over the Twins.
Gomes was locked in on Twins' starter Trevor May. He hit an RBI single in the third, then smashed a three-run homer a few innings later, sending May to the showers. Gomes now has 70 RBI and 20 home runs on the year for the Indians, who have won four in a row to keep their playoff chances alive. After hitting like a man on fire for July (.329/.367/.624) and August (.349/.369/.540), Gomes had been hitting like a man who just wanted to watch the leaves fall in September (.238/.242/.444). Then, Trevor May entered his life. Despite the slight cool-down this month, he's still slashing .288/.321/.484 in what has been a career year.
Jered Weaver improved to 18-8, scattering one run over seven innings as the Angels felled the Rangers by an 8-5 score on Saturday.
Weaver seems to be in post-season shape, as he now sports a 1.91 ERA over his last five starts. Against the Rangers, he allowed just five hits and a walk while fanning seven. He'll take a 3.43 ERA, 1.19 WHIP, and 164/63 K/BB ratio into his final start of the regular season on Friday in Seattle against the Mariners.
