KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The Indian strikers snapped 3-3 in Monday’s seventh inning, scoring five times in the home of Eddie Rosario and Josh Naylor, and Cleveland’s typically flawless bull was forced to hold on to an 8-6 victory against first place Kansas City Royals. at Kaufman Stadium.
After struggling to come out with a clutch all night, all of Cleveland’s five runs in the seventh came with two outs in the inning.
Rosario dropped a 383-foot saw from Jakob Junis in the right field seats with Amed Rosario and Jose Ramirez on board for their third move of the year. After a single by Harold Ramirez, Naylor introduced a quick ball to Junice in the throne of the Royals for a five-time advantage in Cleveland. Manager Terry Francona said it was good for Naylor to see how his approach on the plate paid off with some results.
“He only feels it because he didn̵
However, no lead is really safe against the Kansas City squad, as Indian relievers were soon discovered at the bottom of the inning.
Brian Shaw took on starter Aaron Sivale in seventh and handed over his first win on April 9 against Detroit. James Karinchak followed Shaw to the mound and served twice to host Hunter Dosier, which reduced Cleveland’s lead from five runs to two. But Karinchak, climbing for the third time in four days, hit Carlos Santana with a runner at the base in the eighth, and Emanuel Claise ran ninth for his sixth save in seven chances.
Shaw (1-0) won his first victory on September 29, 2019 with Colorado. Civale survived some shaky defenses and a strike zone that was sometimes foggy to make 5 2/3 innings, allowing three runs in seven hits with two strikeouts and three walks. Francona said Civale did not give in to the Kansas City strikers and gave his team a chance to win.
“Again, this is one of those games where we don’t win a bunch of tracks, but because it keeps us in the game all of a sudden when we do it (result), they’re significant,” Francona said. “It’s a compliment for a young child.”
Cleveland’s defense seemed inadequate from the start with a direct stop by Amed Rosario, who improperly handled a routine Dozier primer that had to take Civale out of the second with a common ground in the low 30s.
Rosario’s wrong performance was not a mistake, but he extended the inning for Civale by an additional 10 pitches. Jarod Dyson set the middle and Nicki Lopez left before Rosario redeemed himself with a quick throw to the ground in a second to get the quick Whit Maryfield to the final of the second.
In the eighth inning, Andres Jimenez replaced Rosario at a short stop and made a mistake on a ball by Andrew Benintendi, which allowed a draw to come to the plate in Carlos Santana.
Kansas City broke against Civale in the third after a lead lead to Benintendi and Santana’s main strike. Benintendi moved to third place at the player’s choice to avoid a short from Salvador Perez and scored in the center of Jorge Soler.
Cleveland responded in the fourth with a double by Franmil Reyes with a double against Kansas City rookie Daniel Lynch and an RBI double by Naylor, who tied the score at 1-1.
Dosier was on board with a lead three in the fourth when Whit Maryfield smashed the home side to the left. This was Maryfield’s fourth homir and his first since April 5 in Cleveland, a range of 91 bats.
But the Indians reunited in fifth place during Reyes’ double, double relief, Scott Barlow. Cesar Hernandez took the lead and Jose Ramirez rose after the Ander Rosario player. Rosario paid the price after pulling out the ground as Maryfield’s throw looked out of Santana’s glove and smashed his helmet in his face.
Reyes’ RBI single off the bat at 112.3 mph according to Statcast. This gave him the 14th goal in the last 10 games and the first two RBIs since the birth of his son Framyan on May 1st. Francona said there were always concerns about the player’s time when he was away for any leave, but Reyes seemed to have missed a beat.
“Even in his first bat, he seemed to have a pretty good time,” Francona said. “He came early today and hit. I think he was excited enough where he probably wasn’t tired. “
Lynch, making his debut in his major league, allowed three runs with four goals and hit three while walking four in 4 2/3 assists.
Civale climbed to sixth place after battling long innings early. He left with two outs and two runners at the base after a single by Lopez. Shaw was walking Maryfield, but initially pulled Beninendi to the ground to avoid damage.
Next: The series continues on Tuesday as rookie left-hander Sam Henges (1-0, 4.76) will make his first start in the major leagues against Royals left-hander Mike Minor (2-1, 5.26). Henges won his first big victory in the relief against the Yankees on April 25. The first field from Kauffman Stadium is scheduled for 20:10. The game will be broadcast on Bally Sports Great Lakes, WTAM 1100 AM, WMMS 100.7 FM and Radio Network Network.
