Indians starter Danny Salazar, who baffled the Rays for most of the first three innings on Wednesday, got into trouble by allowing back-to-back one-out singles to James Loney and Evan Longoria. After retiring Ben Zobrist for the second out, Salazar got too much of the plate with a 1-0 fastball and Jennings lined it down the left field line. Longoria scored all the way from first on the play.
Jennings is no stranger to playoff success. The 26-year-old native of Alabama entered the game with a .294/.400/.706 line in 20 career postseason plate appearances.
