A rare offensive explosion by the Guardians yesterday resulted in five runs and their first win outside of a save situation in a long, long time.

Between the offense showing signs of life, young pitchers looking like studs on the mound, and Triston McKenzie’s return to the team, things might finally be starting to turn the corner. Let’s hope, anyway.

Guardians 5, Orioles 0

Lost in the excitement of scoring more than four runs was the fact that Logan Allen was absolutely dominant out there, mixing all four of his excellent pitches with pinpoint mechanics. He finished his seven shutout innings with 10 strikeouts, two walks, and just three hits.

While James Karinchak has struggled, Enyel De Los Santos and Xzavion Curry have stepped up | Cleveland
It’s time to shift James Karinchak to mop-up duty, at least until he remembers how to throw strikes again. The only place he should see high-leverage situations until further notice is Columbus.
