Houston, TX — Cleveland third baseman Mark Reynolds blasted his seventh home run of the season, one of four Tribe shots on the day, as the Indians beat the Houston Astros 5-4 on Sunday afternoon at Minute Maid Park.
Reynolds hit a 3-2 pitch by former Indians reliever Hector Ambriz (0-1, 3.97) off the arches in left field to break a 4-4 tie. Reynolds had five hits and three walks in 10 at-bats against Houston over the weekend.
The Tribe had seven extra base hits including the homers, which were all of the solo variety. Cleveland hitters were just 1-for-8 with runners in scoring position.
In addition to Reynolds' deciding dinger, catcher Yan Gomes hit his second homer of the year in the second. He also led off the fourth inning with a triple but failed to score. First baseman Carlos Santana hit a homer for the second consecutive game in the fifth and center fielder Drew Stubbs hit his first home run in an Indians uniform in the sixth.
