Neil Ramirez kept the Mariner home run streak alive, but for the second game in a row, that wasn’t enough for Seattle to earn a win. Indians 4, Mariners 2.
Earlier in the day, Eric Stamets was (finally) demoted, but the name who replaced him was a surprise. Mike Freeman got the callup, and responded with an error on a routine ground ball and a timely RBI insurance run. Freeman posted a Gallo-esque line in AAA this season.
• The Red Sox got tired of Blake Swihart and called up Sandy Leon to replace him. It did not help. Boston lost 8-0 in NY and now has a .333 W%, which is worse than the 2018 Royals and 2017 Tigers.
• The Cardinals made a boatload of transactions.
• Christian Yelich homered again.
• Gio Urshela added another highlight reel play to his resume.
