The Cleveland Indians just took two games off against the Boston Red Sox, but have proven swiftly at Yankee Stadium that their struggles will not linger. Chad Green, New York's opener, couldn't find any sort of groove with his slider on Thursday, loading the bases with nobody out. Jose Ramirez unloaded them right quick.
Not to be outdone, Jason Kipnis didn't let Green escape with only four runs worth of embarrassment. Similarly, he stomped on one, too.
Green was pulled, Yankee fans rejoiced about Jonathan Loaisiga's return, and then, uh...yeah. A grounder doinked off Gleyber Torres' glove and Roberto Perez put the game out of reach with the inning's third homer.
Somehow that's Perez's...20th of the season?! Yeah, the baseballs are normal, though.
Mercy, what a killing.
