Cleveland smashes Yankees in 11-1 win

The Cleveland Baseball Club won their third and final game of their series with the New York Yankees by a very comfortable margin.

The unlikeliest of unlikely outcomes came Sunday afternoon in The Bronx. The Cleveland Baseball Club hammered Yankees starter Gerrit Cole as they came away with a 11-1 victory over New York. Cole allowed seven runs on 10 hits while walking one and striking out seven in 5.2 innings. What bit Cole was the long ball as he allowed home runs to Jose Ramirez and Roberto Perez in back-to-back innings before exiting the game. Prior to that it was three RBI singles which gave Cleveland the lead. Harold Ramirez came though in the 1st and 3rd innings, driving in four runs off just two hits while Perez singled home a run in 3rd as well.

Cleveland totaled 16 hits in all and scored 11 runs along the way while walking three times. Jose Ramirez was a perfect 4-4  and Yu Chang went 3-5, accounting for nearly half of Cleveland’s hits.

Eli Morgan started the game for Cleveland and he was impressive. Morgan struck out just three batters while allowing one run on six hits in 6 innings of work. The only run allowed by Morgan was a solo home run from former Cleveland baseball player Gio Urshela. After Morgan it was three scoreless innings form Trevor Stephan, Blake Parker, and Sam Hentges.

With the win, Cleveland is now 72-74 on the year while the Yankees are firmly in fourth place in the AL East. Cleveland returns home to take on the Royals for the beginning of their final home stand of the year beginning with a doubleheader Monday
