Guardians 4 - Rangers 0

Shane Bieber was furious when officials delayed the game in the fourth inning, one out before it would have become official, with the Guardians leading 4-0.

The game resumed two hours and seven minutes later and it would end with the same score after what should have been unnecessary relief stints from Morgan, de Los Santos, and Shaw.
