Hinch ejected after 2-run wild pitch as Indians win 10-7

CLEVELAND - The Indians scored a pair of runs on a controversial bases-loaded wild pitch by David Paulino in the third inning that led to the ejection of Houston Astros manager A.J. Hinch, and Cleveland went on to a 10-7 win Thursday.

Cleveland led 2-1 when Lonnie Chisenhall attempted to check his swing on a pitch in the dirt.

The ball bounced away from catcher Jason Castro and rolled toward the on-deck circle near the Indians dugout.

Play was allowed to continue, although replays showed Chisenhall fouled off the pitch. All three runners - Francisco Lindor, Mike Napoli and Jose Ramirez - crossed the plate.

Hinch protested the ruling and was ejected by plate umpire Jim Joyce.

After a video review, Lindor and Napoli were allowed to score for a 4-1 lead, and Ramirez was placed at second.
