Just before the Mid-Summer Clbadic, two All-Stars met in Cleveland.
Yankees RHP Luis Severino was scheduled to pitch against Indians RHP Corey Kluber and expectations were high.
Unfortunately for the neutral spectator, neither Severino nor Kluber were at the top of their game. Severino worked for five innings, allowing four runs and nine hits with two strikeouts, while Kluber could last 7.1 innings, but was marked by six runs and eight hits with nine strikeouts.
Severino allowed two runs at the back of the field. first, a single producer for José Ramírez and solo homer for Edwin Encarnación. Kluber soon did the same, when Brett Gardner hit a two-run homer in the third inning to tie the game.
The Indians resumed the lead in the bottom half of the draw, courtesy of a single by Yonder Alonso but the Yankees responded immediately with two runs in the top of the quarter. Didi Gregorius hit a solo homer and Greg Bird hit a double RBI.
Ramirez hit his 28th homer of the season, a single shot, in the fifth inning. Severino finished the entry and then was eliminated.
Kluber was established, keeping the Yankees off the scoreboard for three consecutive innings, and he returned for the eighth inning and the Bronx Bombers were able to advance two more runs.
Severino & # 39; s ERA rose to 2.31, Kluber & # 39; s to 2.76.
