Cleveland- The Guardians offense and pitching gelled on Wednesday night leading Cleveland to victory over Boston. Tanner Bibee was on the hill for the Guardians earning his first win since his Major League debut on April 26. The rookie pitched five innings allowing four hits, one earned run and recording two strikeouts. Bibee has five straight starts of five or more innings pitched with three or fewer earned runs allowed.

Boston got on the board first with a single by Rafael Devers. Cleveland answered back with an RBI single from Josh Bell. The game was tied 1-1. Since returning from paternity leave Bell is riding a six-game hitting streak.

In the top of the 4th Enmanuel Valdez reached on a fielding error by first baseman Josh Naylor. This allowed Enrique Hernandez to score putting the Red Sox up 2-1.

Speaking of errors, Boston would make a few of their own in the 4th. Amed Rosario opened the frame with a single. Then Jose Ramirez reached on a fielding error by first baseman Triston Casas.  Rosario advanced to 3rd, on a throwing error by second baseman Enmanuel Valdez and Ramirez moved to 2nd. Naylor quickly atoned for his error by singling and  bringing home Rosario. The inning wasn’t over as Bell reached on a fielder’s choice and Ramirez scored putting Cleveland up 3-2.

Rosario and Ramirez both doubled in the 5th bringing the score to 5-2. The Guardians bullpen did their job behind Bibee and didn’t allow Boston to score another run. Emmanuel Clase earned his 20th save of the season.
