WIN AND GO HOME
» Coming off a pair of low-scoring defeats to open the season,
the Clevelanders bounced back with a decisive 9-3 victory over the
Detroiters on Sunday afternoon at Comerica Park.
» Cleveland’s offense pounded out 10 hits, including three doubles
and a trio of home runs…AARON CIVALE pitched effectively
over 7.0 frames to earn his first win of 2021 (7.0IP, 2H, 3R-ER,
3BB, 6SO, 2HR)…trailed 3-2 after giving up home runs to Nomar
Mazara in the 1st (2-run) and Akil Baddoo in the 3rd (solo), but
was ultimately rewarded by the Tribe’s four-run rally in the 7th…
CAL QUANTRILL (1.0IP, 2SO) and EMMANUEL CLASE (1.0IP,
SO) each worked scoreless frames of relief.
