Walk-offs vs former Indians

On Monday Matt LaPorta singled up the middle off A’s reliever (and former Indian) Craig Breslow to give the Indians the walk-off victory.

That got me thinking. How often have the Indians had a walk-off against a former Indian?

I suspected it hadn’t happened often, so naturally I was surprised to go back to 2007 and see that it had happened three times in that year alone.

It’s happened 11 times in the Jacobs Field era, and seven times since 2004.

Three of the hits have been home runs, the most memorable of which came in 1995 when Manny Ramirez‘s walk-off prompted Dennis Eckersley to yell “WOW” as he walked off the field.
