Indians score two in the second inning, one in the fourth innings and the game is over. It really is that easy. The Tribe is 21-2 when scoring three or more. Another win over the Royals and it was done halfway through the game.
You see Shane Bieber shove last night and thank your lucky stars that you play a four-game series and don’t have to face Biebs. Nope. Here comes Zach Plesac with 7.0 innings, seven hits, one earned with four Ks. Eight groundouts, eight flyouts, 96 pitches. See ya again in five days.
‘Whew. At least we got those two out of the way.’ Bang. Triston McKenzie tomorrow with his 1.69 ERA and WHIP under 1.00.
Another Brad Hand job for his league leading 12th save.
Some solid at bats at the plate tonight too. Scored two runs on a fielder’s choices and two more on sac flys. It’s crazy what happens when you put the ball in play with less than two outs and a guy on third.
Left thumb discomfort for Jose Ramirez. I don’t like that.
Back in first place with Chicago idle for the night. 26-15.
