Brandon Kintzler pitched the ninth inning to pick up his 10th save. He has started 14 games in his career. As much as fans are going to want to pin their anger on the Tribe offense, and justifiably so after 8-out-of-10 games with three runs or less, the story of the game was Tomlin.
It was the last kick of the ball and led to a devastated Guidetti slumped on the ground at the full-time whistle as the missed chance started to dawn on him.

Spain's double world champion Fernando Alonso, starting seventh for McLaren after a troubled practice, was forced into the gravel in a tussle with Williams's Felipe Massa and dropped to 13th.

Almirola was injured after he was swept into a wreck involving Joey Logano and Danica Patrick with 69 laps remaining in the Go Bowling 400. NASCAR said Almirola was airlifted to the University of Kansas Medical Center for observation. I just hope everyone is okay. The heavy impact sparked a fireball underneath Almirola's vehicle, which quickly subsided once all three cars came to a halt.
The momentum bounced along from one to the other with Kuznetsova turning around a 1-3 deficit, but from there it was virtually one way traffic for the Frenchwoman as she made her second final in as many tournaments. She will need to serve well against Mladenovic, and she will look to dominate proceedings from the baseline and dictate the rallies. Elena Vesnina and Johanna Konta both won their first Premier Mandatory titles against players who already have won them in the past.
