Cleveland homers four times in rout of Yankees

The Cleveland Baseball Club homered scored 11 runs powered by an offensive outburst featuring four home runs in their win over the Yankees.

It was quite the power display from the Cleveland Baseball Club Saturday afternoon as they clobbered four home runs en route to a 11-3 win over the New York Yankees. Cleveland totaled 12 hits while walking four times while going 5-13 with runners in scoring position. The Yankees did manage eight hits in the game (two homers) and four walks while going going hitless (0-4) with runners in scoring position.

Cleveland’s long balls came from two likely sources and two not so likely sources. Beginning with likely it was Jose Ramirez and Franmil Reyes hitting their 34th and 30th home runs on the year respectively. Meanwhile it was the eighth round tripper of the year for Yu Chang and just the third for Andres Gimenez. Additionally, Chang and Reyes would collect RBI doubles in the contest which helped add to Cleveland’s run total.

Aaron Civale took the mound for Cleveland as he kept a potent Yankees lineup off the scoreboard for 6 innings. Civale allowed just four hits and one walk while striking out four to earn his 11th win of the season.

The Yankees did their damage in the run department with Bryan Shaw and Justin Garza on the mound. Combined Shaw and Garza allowed three runs on three hits and two walks (both Garza’s). All three of New York’s home runs came on home runs, a solo shot form Giancarlo Stanton and a two-run homer from Luke Voit in the 8th.

The third and final game of the series will take place Sunday at 1:05 P.M. Cleveland can continue to play spoiler to a Yankees team currently on the outside of the playoff picture entering Sunday.
