What Happened

On Thursday, Jose Ramirez homered in his first three at-bats for the Cleveland Guardians. He powered the Guardians to a 10-3 victory over the Boston Red Sox. His first was a solo home run off of Matt Dermody (0-1). Ramirez then rattled off his second home run of the night, which was his 200th career home run. In the sixth, he hit his third home run of the night as the Guardians hit for the cycle. The team had eight straight hits and scored five times.

In the sixth, Ramirez had a second opportunity to bat and had a chance to homer for the fourth time of the night, but struck out swinging. In the eighth, Ramirez grounded out to third in his next opportunity to knock it out of the park. This was Ramirez’s first career three-homer game. It was the seventh time in his career that he has hit a home run from both sides of the plate.

Right Fielder Will Brennan also added a home run for the Guardians. The win handed the Red Sox their fifth loss in six games, and currently sit at 31–32 on the season. Red Sox first baseman Triston Casas hit his seventh home run of the season against Aaron Civale (2-1) to pull Boston within a run at 3-2. Cleveland’s bats heated up in the sixth against former Cleveland pitcher Corey Kluber. After Ramirez homered in the sixth, Andres Gimenez smacked a two-run double. Myles Straw went on to hit an RBI triple and Brennan singled him home, putting the Guardians up 8-2.

Current State of the Guardians

The Cleveland Guardians currently sit at 29-33 in the AL Central, a game and a half behind the Minnesota Twins. The Guardians have the Houston Astros (36-27) next for a two-game homestand followed by three games in San Diego against the Padres (29-33).

The Guardians tend to pick it up later in the season. Now is typically the time we see the bats come out as well as their ace pitching.
