TORONTO (AP) &#8212; , and AL MVP contender Jose Ramirez came to the plate at the perfect moment.And still the Cleveland Indians couldn&#8217;t turn it into a victory.Kevin Pillar hit a solo homer in the bottom of the 11th after Ramirez grounded out with the bases loaded in the top of the inning, allowing the Toronto Blue Jays to beat the Indians 3-2 on Friday night.Pillar&#8217;s second career walkoff home run came off right-hander Adam Cimber (3-6). It was Pillar&#8217;s 12th homer of the season.The loss was Cimber&#8217;s first with Cleveland following a midseason trade from San Diego.&#8220;I thought the slider was the right pitch there,&#8221; Cimber said. &#8220;Just didn&#8217;t execute it and he smacked it.&#8221;The Blue Jays recorded their eighth walkoff win of the season, one more than they had last year. Toronto is 20-12 in one-run games.Cleveland dropped to 2-7 in extra innings. The Indians&#8217; magic number to clinch a third straight AL Central title remains at seven.Carrasco matched a season best by striking out 14 over eight innings. The right-hander allowed two runs, one earned, and six hits.After establishing his fastball, Carrasco relied on his slider and changeup to keep the Blue Jays swinging and missing. He struck out four straight over the first and second innings and fanned a pair in six of his eight innings.&#8220;Even on 3-2, I was using my slider,&#8221; he said. &#8220;It was good.&#8221;Just not good enough for the Indians to triumph.&#8220;Anytime a guy pitches that well, you want to give him a win,&#8221; infielder Jason Kipnis said.Toronto won for the first time in franchise history when striking out at least 20 times.&#8220;There&#8217;s probably not a better slider in the game ,&#8221; Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said of Carrasco. &#8220;He attacks. If he&#8217;s on, there&#8217;s going to be some walking back to the dugout.&#8221;Yan Gomes hit a solo home run for the Indians.Pillar had reached third base with two outs in the ninth, but Neil Ramirez sent the game to extra innings by getting Richard Urena to fly out.Cleveland loaded the bases with two outs in the 11th, but Danny Barnes (3-2) relieved Jake Petricka and got Ramirez to ground out to second base.Ramirez opened the scoring with a two-out RBI single off Marco Estrada in the fifth, but the Blue Jays scored in the bottom half when Rowdy Tellez doubled and scored on Aledmys Diaz&#8217;s sacrifice fly.The Indians reclaimed the lead on a two-out homer by Gomes in the sixth, his 13th, but Toronto tied it again when Randal Grichuk and Tellez hit back-to-back doubles off Carrasco in the seventh.Tellez has six doubles in his first three games, making him the first rookie since Joe DiMaggio in 1936 to have six doubles over any three-game stretch in his debut season.Toronto put runners at first and second with two outs in the eighth, but Carrasco ended his outing by getting Grichuk to ground into a fielder&#8217;s choice.Estrada allowed two runs and five hits in six innings.EXCLUSIVE COMPANYAstros teammates Gerrit Cole and Justin Verlander are the only other pitchers to strike out 14 or more twice this season.SHAPIRO SPEAKSBlue Jays president and CEO Mark Shapiro touched on a number of subjects in a rare media availability several hours before the game. Shapiro denied a rift with team owner Rogers Communications and shot down a report linking him with the New York Mets.&#8220;This is where I want to be,&#8221; he said.Shapiro also responded to Thursday&#8217;s criticism from the MLB Player&#8217;s Association over the Blue Jays decision not to promote top prospect Vladimir Guerrero Jr., viewed as a manipulation of the 19-year-old star&#8217;s service time.&#8220;I feel strongly that the best thing for Vladdy&#8217;s development is the path that we&#8217;ve laid out Bartolo Colon Jersey ,&#8221; Shapiro said, adding that he welcomes &#8220;scrutiny&#8221; from the union. Guerrero was named Baseball America&#8217;s minor league player of the year Friday.YOUTH MOVEMENTRegarding the roster rebuild currently underway in Toronto, Shapiro said &#8220;there&#8217;s no longer any gray area about where we are,&#8221; adding that a return to competitiveness could be &#8220;a matter of two, three, four years, because that&#8217;s the amount of time it takes for players to transition to the major league level.&#8221;TRAINER&#8217;S ROOMIndians: 3B Josh Donaldson (left calf) went 0 for 4 with two strikeouts in a playoff game for Double-A Akron. &#8230; OF Michael Brantley (left foot) sat for a second straight day. &#8230; LHP Andrew Miller (left shoulder) will throw a side session Saturday.UP NEXTIndians RHP Adam Plutko (4-5, 5.04) faces Blue Jays RHP Sean Reid-Foley (1-2, 5.51) on Saturday afternoon. Plutko is winless in seven outings since a June 24 victory over Detroit. Reid-Foley allowed one run in seven innings to beat Miami for his first career win last Sunday, his third big league start. NEW YORK (AP) &#8212; The New York Mets are transferring longtime media relations boss Jay Horwitz to a new role as vice president of alumni public relations and team historian.Mets chief operating officer Jeff Wilpon announced Horwitz&#8217;s job change Wednesday at a press conference that was more of a roast by former players, coaches and executives. Horwitz has been with the team for nearly 40 years Jon Niese Jersey , and figures from throughout his tenure attended.Among them: Darryl Strawberry, Dwight Gooden, Mookie Wilson, Keith Hernandez, John Franco, Joe Torre, Terry Collins, Steve Phillips and Omar Minaya. A number of current Mets also attended, including captain David Wright.Horwitz will work in his new role to aid next season&#8217;s 50-year anniversary of the Mets 1969 World Series championship, and also on further connecting the club&#8217;s alumni.The 73-year-old Horwitz has been beloved by players for his bumbling but loyal personality.Horwitz recalled how he spilled a can of orange juice on general manager Frank Cashen during his job interview in 1980 but got the job anyway. He was then late to his first day of work, mistakenly commuting to Brooklyn instead of Shea Stadium.Horwitz has often been a subject of clubhouse pranks. Wright admitted to repeatedly rubbing eye black on Horwitz&#8217;s binoculars. Franco said he used to cut off Horwitz&#8217;s ties in his sleep. Horwitz even said players once &#8220;made a No. 2 in my bed&#8221; on the road.&#8220;The older guys taught me , if they don&#8217;t like you, they won&#8217;t screw around with you,&#8221; Horwitz said.Players also tried to set up Horwitz on dates during road trips. Some were more successful than others &#8212; he claimed to break out in hives after the team brought a stripper to the Wrigley Field clubhouse for his birthday years ago.Wright also said Horwitz was instrumental in helping him establish a good relationship with the New York media, and Franco praised Horwitz for his loyalty.&#8220;He would fight for the players,&#8221; Franco said. He later choked up when adding &#8220;I love you man. Thank you.&#8221;Horwitz&#8217;s first assistant with the Mets, Tim Hamilton, died Wednesday. Hamilton predated Horwitz with New York, and Horwitz told The Associated Press that Hamilton was a &#8220;great guy&#8221; who helped acclimate him to life at Shea Stadium. Hamilton&#8217;s ex-wife, Lorraine Hamilton, is still the Mets&#8217; executive director of broadcasting and events.
