The Indians continued to create a September to remember Tuesday night at Progressive Field. Just what the final form of that memory will be remains a mystery but one way or another it will be extreme.

How extreme? Here's a hint.

After Chris Perez seemingly blew the game by giving up homers to Dayan Viciedo and Alejandro De Aza in the ninth Jason Giambi hit a two-run pinch-hit homer with two out off Addison Reed to give the Indians a 5-4 victory in front of 21083 screaming fans who are learning to say hello when it's time to say goodbye.

After Michael Brantley reached with his third hit of the game a single to right Giambi hit a 1-1 pitch deep into the lower deck in right field for the walk-off win. It was Giambi's third pinch-hit homer of the season.

The Indians were seemingly done after Viciedo hit a leadoff homer in the ninth to tie the score and De Aza followed two outs later to make it 4-3. Viciedo and De Aza each homered to right. After Alexei Ramirez singled to left manager Terry Francona removed Perez who was booed loudly.

The victory gives the Indians 13 straight wins over Chicago. The Indians lead the season series 16-3. Bryan Shaw (6-3) earned the win.

The Indians trailing 2-1 in the seventh scored twice on a homer by Brantley and a two-out single by Jason Kipnis. After a scoreless eighth inning by Joe Smith the scene was set for Perez. The blown save was Perez's first since Aug. 14 and fifth overall against 25 saves.

Brantley hit Hector Santiago's first pitch of the seventh 410 feet into the right field seats to tie the score 2-2. It was Brantley's 10th homer and his second RBI of the game.

After Mike Aviles singled to left Michael Bourn advanced him with a sacrifice bunt. Nate Jones (5-5) relieved and retired Nick Swisher on a fly ball to the track in center as Aviles moved to third. Kipnis delivered the tiebreaking run with a single to the gap in left center.

It was just the sixth RBI for Kipnis in September.

The Indians retained their hold on the second AL wild card spot with the victory. They entered the game trailing Tampa Bay by one game for the first wild-card spot while holding a one-game lead over Texas. Tampa Bay was playing the Yankees and Texas was playing Houston.
