Jose Ramirez Sets Indians Record for Most HR’s in First Half with 28th Slam Against Yankees

CLEVELANDJose Ramirez continues to put up video game like numbers in the first half of the season for the Indians, and Thursday night against the Yankees he broke a record set 12 seasons ago.

The record broken by Ramirez was for the most homers in the first half of a season by any Indians player, a mark that was set during the the 1996 season when Albert Belle hit 27 homers.

Ramirez, who has now homered in three straight games, slammed his 28th homer of the season off Yankees starter Luis Severino in the 5th inning to tie the affair at four.

It’s the second time this season that Ramirez, who Wednesday turned down a chance to be in the All-Star HR Derby, has homered in three straight games.
