LGT Recap | Box Score

Corey Kluber made it look pretty doggone easy, going eight innings and allowing just two runs on five hits, earning his 10th win. The Tribe’s ace owns a 1.99 ERA on the season and has faced 168 batters without allowing a walk (unreal). With the win, the Indians improved to 34-29 on the season.

Indians catcher Roberto Perez waiting for results of X-rays on his right hand |

Perez was hit squarely on the right hand/wrist and hopefully will avoid a long absence. If Perez does have to go on the disabled list, expect Eric Haase, not Francisco Mejia, to be called up.

Neil Ramirez emerging as reliable relief arm |

We need him to keep it up! From Jordan Bastian:

As the Tribe’s relief corps has slowly emerged from its rocky May, Ramirez has increasingly stepped up when offered the opportunity.

As Francona noted, Ramirez posted a 13.50 ERA in his first four appearances after being promoted from Triple-A Columbus last month. In his six appearances since that rough first impression, the right-hander has yielded no runs over 6 2/3 innings, stuck out six and held opposing batters to a .439 OPS. Four times in that span, Ramirez has entered in the eighth inning.
