Frustrated Jose Ramirez refuses day off, hits two home runs |

From Paul Hoynes:

José Ramírez was frustrated.

The Guardians were struggling to score runs, and Ramírez was making outs in big situations. It got to a point where manager Terry Francona and bench coach DeMarlo Hale, talking late Saturday night about Sunday’s lineup, thought about giving him Sunday off.

The subject was broached to Ramírez.

“Josie said, ‘No, I’m good,’. . .thank goodness,” said Francona.
