MINNEAPOLIS, MN -- Franmil Reyes snapped a 0-29 streak at the plate with a line drive double to right field to put the tribe ahead early, and the red-hot tribe never looked back. Cleveland rallied behind yet another amazing performance by Shane Bieber, and piled on five runs in the fifth to take away all remaining doubt. With a 6-2 victory over the Minnesota Twins, the tribe are now tied for first place in the American League Central Division.
Reigning MLB All-Star Game MVP Shane Bieber was near perfect tonight, slicing through the Twins lineup all night long. Bieber tossed 7 full innings, giving up two earned runs on seven hits, striking out eleven batters. The young tribe righty earned a career high 13th win with a lot of baseball ahead of him this season.
Jose Ramirez continues to be the catalyst for the sizzling Indians lineup, as he has hit an extra-base hit in eight consecutive games. Ramirez went 3-4, driving in one run and scoring twice.
The Minnesota Twins made history tonight on a solo homerun off the bat of Jason Castro, launching the Twins' 226th homer of the year, setting a new franchise record.
The Cleveland Indians move to an impressive 70-46 record on the season. Adam Plutko will take the ball tomorrow evening as the tribe attempt to take the division lead. Plutko will square off against Minnesota hurler Jake Odorizzi. First pitch is set for 7:10 pm ET at Target Field in Minnesota, Minneapolis. Check out highlights from tonight's win below!
