(Cincinnati, OH) -- Jose Ramirez went 3-for-5 with a homer, two RBI and three runs scored as the Indians crushed the Reds 8-1 in Cincinnati.
Ramirez's third homer in his last three games gives him 36 on the season, one behind Red Sox slugger J.D. Martinez for the major-league lead. He has eight hits, six RBI and six runs scored during the stretch.
Corey Kluber earned his 15th win. Sal Romano didn't make it out of the second inning and took the loss.
Preston Tucker had two of the Reds' five hits and drove in their only run. Cleveland has won four straight and goes for the three-game sweep on Wednesday. Shane Bieber starts for the Tribe, and Robert Stephenson for the Reds. First pitch at 7:10 p.m. on WTAM 1100 and 100.7 WMMS.
There's no indication on when Trevor Bauer will return to the starting rotation. He was put on the 10-day disabled list Tuesday when it was determined that he had a stress fracture in his right fibula, after he was hit in the ankle by a line drive on Saturday.
