Reds unable to secure early 4-0 lead over Tribe
CLEVELAND (AP) Yan Gomes hit a three-run homer in the sixth inning and had four RBIs, and the Cleveland Indians rallied from an early four-run deficit to beat the Cincinnati Reds 15-6 on Monday night.
Marlon Byrd hit a two-run homer in a five-run sixth and the Indians erased a 4-0 deficit while recording season highs in runs and hits.
Cincinnati scored four times in the first three innings, but Cleveland tied it with a four-run third and added three in the fourth.
Francisco Lindor, who was 3 for 5, Jason Kipnis and Mike Napoli all had two RBIs for the Indians, who had 19 hits.
Kipnis’ two-run single broke a 4-all tie and helped the Indians take a three-run lead in the fourth. The Reds cut the lead to one in the fifth, but Gomes, homering for the third straight game, and Byrd, who had three hits, unloaded off Layne Somsen.
