It didn’t happen until the eighth inning yesterday, but the Cleveland Guardians offense finally erupted, if only briefly. Thanks to a three-run shot from Josh Naylor and an insurance run later from Andrés Giménez, Cleveland avoided dropping two straight to the Angels.
Look away from the rest of the game — including a shaky top of the ninth from the bullpen — and focus on the fun inning. Just look at the flowers.
