This one was rough. Jason Kipnis hit another home run, Sin-Shoo Choo had a two-run double, but the Jenmar Gomez couldn’t keep the Pirates in the yard (not that the Indians’ defense helped them out). The the Tribe trailing 5-4, Asdrubal Cabrera’s fifth inning fielding/throwing error gave the Pirates two runs and extended the inning for Pirates’ 3B Pedro Alvarez. Alvarez proceeded to smack his second three-run bomb of the day (in his second straight multi-homer game) to send Gomez to the showers and breaking the game open 9-4 (the Tribe began the fifth with a 4-3 lead).

The Indians welcome the Cincinnati Reds to Progressive Field at 7:05 on Monday night.
