Indians 1, Reds 5
After six innings, the Tribe trailed the Reds by a score of 2-1. Tito decided to press his luck by leaving Josh Tomlin in to start the seventh and he got burned when Josh ended up giving up two more runs in the inning. On a more positive note, Jason Kipnis continued his recent stretch of hot hitting with a home run, which represented the only run that Cleveland would score all game. There are still three games remaining in this 4-game (?) series, so there’s still time for the Tribe to win the coveted (?) Ohio Cup.
Corey Kluber has been plagued with a couple of different injuries so far this season. The most recent injury was some lower back pain that put him on the 10-day DL. Kluber is looking to get back to Cleveland as quickly as possible, but he will first embark on a rehab assignment with the Clippers this Thursday.
Danny Salazar has the arsenal to be an elite starting pitcher if he can trust his ability to get batters out. Mickey Callaway was pleased with Danny’s progress in his most recent start, but he knows that there’s a long way to go to get the young starter’s confidence back up to 100%.
