The Tribe started Corey Kluber who would pitch for 5-2/3's giving up 5 hits and 4 runs and he struck out 6 hitters. The Cleveland Indians offense was a non-factor, they couldn't score even one run to stop the shut out.The Indians had a scary moments in the game when their star short stop was hit by a pitch and it looked like he hand damage to his thumb on his left hand.
Sandy Alomar would face the same problems former Indians Manny Acta faced in most of his games in the second half. The Indians offense couldn't get anything going.
