Indians outfielder Rajai Davis wasn't very pleased when he caught a shallow fly ball in the seventh inning Tuesday, threw home and missed an opportunity to double up Kyle Schwarber, who had strayed about 50 feet off the second base bag. "I just wanted to crawl under a rug," Davis said. "I was like, 'Man, that could have been a triple play -- or at least a double play. All I had to do was run it to second for an easy out." Fortunately for Davis, Andrew Miller struck out Addison Russell and David Ross to escape a bases-loaded jam.
