Cleveland Wins it Against AL Saves Leader Johnson

By  | 

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Nyjer Morgan hit a go-ahead sacrifice fly in the ninth inning against new Athletics closer Jim Johnson and the Cleveland Indians sent Oakland to its major league-record 10th straight opening loss with a 2-0 victory Monday night.

Nick Swisher added an RBI single against Johnson (0-1), who was then pulled from his A's debut.

In the sixth, crew chief Mike Winters became the first umpire to initiate a review under the expanded replay system, making the call after a collision at home plate.

Winters requested the review on a close play that kept Cleveland from breaking a scoreless tie. The call was confirmed in 59 seconds.
