Yan Gomes showed patience in drawing a bases loaded walk, bringing in the go-ahead run in the 11th inning, helping the Indians top the Reds on Sunday.

He singled in the 10th ahead of drawing his go-ahead walk in the 11th. Gomes is still waiting to get on a hot streak, as he's batting a meager .222/.241/.348 with four home runs and 14 RBI in in 166 plate appearances this year.

Yan Gomes went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts in Thursday's win over the Mariners.

Gomes homered twice off Mariner pitching on Tuesday, but he found tougher sledding against the M's during Thursday's match-up. His 0-for-4 snapped a little six-game hitting streak. Gomes has been playing better of late than his overall slash of .225/.243/.338, but he still has work to do as he tries to pull his numbers back to respectability. Last season, he slashed .278/.313/.472 with 21 homers and 74 RBI.

Gomes had been showing signs of life at the plate in recent games, and it all came together Tuesday. The catcher hit a solo shot off Roenis Elias in the second inning before swatting another solo blast in the ninth. The homers were his first in 16 games this year and may be a sign of better things to come for the 27-year-old.
