Cleveland – José Ramirez scored two RBIs made possible by Baltimore’s blunder on the field. The Cleveland Indians won 4-3 on Monday night, extending the Orioles’ losing streak to 16 games.
The Indian victory was eased by the team losing AL Cy Young winner Shane Bieber for an unknown period due to shoulder tension. The beaver is on the injured list and will not pick up baseball for at least two weeks.
Ramirez escaped from Dean Kremer (0-6) in his first inning when Baltimore left fielder DJ Stewart slipped into the wet grass after a regular fly. Ramirez added the RBI double for the sixth time after Orioles second baseman Stevie Wilkerson dropped a foul pop.
Indian rookie relief Nick Sandrin (1-0) won his first career victory by defeating three of the five batters he faced.
James Karinchak cleared the jam for the 7th time and hit the side for the 8th time for a lead-off walk. Emanuel Klaas was in 9th place 1-2-3 on his 10th save.
The start was delayed by an hour due to rain, but the Orioles couldn’t delay the team’s record road loss slide extension. Baltimore hasn’t won away from home since John Means threw a no-hitter no-run in Seattle on May 5.
Unfortunately, Baltimore’s winning streak isn’t the longest in the majors of the season. Texas also lost 16 games in a row from May 10th to June 11th, and Arizona lost 19 games in a row to face San Francisco on Monday night.
The 1963 New York Mets holds a record with 22 straight road losses.
Orioles manager Brandon Hyde overcame the rain lag, but wasn’t the first inning as he was sent off for discussion.
The Indians took a break while recording three runs in their first inning. This included Hyde being thrown to protest the capsized call.
Indian manager Terry Francona won the video review challenge when Amed Rosario was first awarded after first winning a runner and being hit by the pitch. Hyde rushed from Dougout and was immediately thrown out by first baseman Nester Seha.
Cleveland’s first run was scored when Ramirez lofted a fly and Stewart lost his foothold and fell. Eddie Rosario continued the sacrifice fly and Bobby Bradley scored a RBI.
The Orioles cut it 3-2 for the fourth time with a RBI ground out by Stewart and Freddy Galvis.
Ramirez doubled in the sixth inning to win a nine-pitch turn at bat, and subsequent hits failed to push his deep foul ball into the first base line.
Baltimore closed within 4-3 in the 7th inning with a pinch hitter Maikel Franco’s RBI single.
Beaver hasn’t pitched up to his high standards lately, and right-handed players may feel the effect of averaging the MLB-leading 105 pitches from start to start. He lost to Seattle on Sunday, threw 107 in just five innings, and underwent an MRI that revealed swelling.
The beaver will not be thrown for 2 weeks and will be re-evaluated.
“So we need to slow him down, calm this down,” said manager Terry Francona.
Indians currently play only two teams with a winning record for the rest of June. After four matches against the Orioles, who set the worst AL record, they will face Pittsburgh, Cubs, Minnesota and Detroit.
A simple schedule is not always useful. Cleveland entered the series 16-17 against clubs under .500 and 18-11 against the winning team.
Indian RHP Calcuantril (0-2) will face Orioles RHP Matt Harvey (3-7), who has made his third start and lost seven of the last eight starts.
