Yan Gomes hit a pair of solo home runs in four at-bats, but the Indians dropped Tuesday's game in 10 innings to the Blue Jays.
Gomes tied the game at 2-2 in the seventh inning with his first solo home run, off of Marco Estrada. In the ninth inning, he re-tied the game at three apiece, swatting his second solo homer off of Roberto Osuna. The catcher now has three homer uns in his last three games, a good sign as he has otherwise not done much offensively. Gomes is batting .225/.265/.389 with 11 home runs and 37 RBI. Sep 1 - 10:36 PM

Yan Gomes drove in five runs Saturday in the Indians' 8-3 rout of the Angels.

Gomes hit a sacrifice fly that scored Carlos Santana in the bottom of the second inning and he launched a grand slam in Cleveland's five-run eighth inning. Gomes is trying to end his mostly-disappointing 2015 on a high note. He's definitely capable of a strong finish.

These kinds of games are not the norm for the catcher, who is hitting .227/.251/.377 with seven homers and 24 RBI across 207 at-bats.

He singled in the 10th ahead of drawing his go-ahead walk in the 11th.
