All action came in the second inning when Yonder Alonso smashed his fifth home run of the season to give the Tribe a 2-0 lead. Chance Sisco would single in Adam Jones in the bottom half of the inning, but both offenses went quiet afterwards as both starters would make it into the eighth inning. Andrew Miller and Cody Allen relieved a dominant Carlos Carrasco to give the Tribe a series victory over the Orioles.
