CLEVELAND (AP/WJW) — José Ramírez’s second two-run homer of the game snapped a tie in the eighth inning and sent the Cleveland Indians to a 4-2 win over the Kansas City Royals after Cy Young winner Shane Bieber struck out 12.
Ramírez’s one-out shot off Greg Holland gave the Indians their first home win in 2021 after they were shut out Monday.
Earlier, Ramirez connected for a two-run homer in the sixth. Bieber allowed just three hits in 6 1/3 innings. He’s struck out at least 8 in 14 straight starts. Salvador Perez homered for the Royals.
The Indians are now 2-3 on the season. They play the Detroit Tigers at home Friday at 7:10 p.m.
