(Cleveland, OH)  --  The Indians exploded for nine runs in the third inning and six in the fourth as they hammered the Reds 19-4 in Cleveland.  Jose Ramirez hit two homers and drove in five, while Jason Kipnis and Francisco Lindor also left the yard.  It was Lindor's 25th bomb of the season.  

Carlos Carrasco earned his 10th win as Cleveland avoided a three-game sweep.  Tyler Mahle didn't make it out of the third inning, giving up seven runs to take the loss.  

Scooter Gennett and Jesse Winkler each put one in the seats for Cincinnati.

The Indians wrap up the home stand, and go into the All-Star break with a four-game weekend series against the New York Yankees.  Corey Kluber starts for the Tribe Thursday night, and Luis Severino for the Bronx Bombers.  First pitch at 7:10 p.m. on WTAM 1100 and 100.7 WMMS.
