The Tribe already had three runs on three hits in the inning to tie the game, the only out coming on a sacrifice bunt, and a chance for the lead with the middle of the order due up. Iglesias thwarted that by running down Ryan Raburn's ground ball deep in the hole and flipping the ball to Ian Kinsler at second.

It was the 37th double play turned by Iglesias this season, fifth among American League shortstops despite missing time earlier in the year with a groin injury.
