2. But there was more than one AL East team to rally from three runs down in the ninth. The Red Sox did the same against the Indians, and Jacoby Ellsbury was the two-run, two-out doubler in this one:
3. After a tepid start, the Angels are rolling. They beat the Royals to extend their winning streak to eight games.
4. In case you missed it, on Saturday, there was an inside-the-park walk-off home run for the first time since 2004. The Giants' Angel Pagan did it:
5. As amazing as this was, it'd be hard to top what Roberto Clemente did on July 25, 1956. Down three runs in the bottom of the ninth against the Cubs, he delivered a walk-off inside-the-park grand slam.

9. Today is Memorial Day in the U.S. and every MLB team will commemorate those who have died serving in the armed forces. No matter how you spend the day, all of us at Cut4 hope you have a good one.
