LGT Recap | Cleveland.com Recap | Box Score

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.
