Kluber gets plenty of run support as Indians sweep White Sox with 12-0 win; three takeaways

1. One big swing for Ramirez

Jose Ramirez put the Indians up for good in the first inning when he belted a homer to center field on a 1-0, 95.7 mph four-seamer.

The long ball gave the Indians a 3-0 lead as Francisco Lindor drew a walk and Michael Brantley reached first on an error prior to Ramirez’s at-bat. It was also Ramirez’s 22nd homer this year, tying him for second in baseball with Boston’s JD Martinez. Both sit just behind L.A.’s Mike Trout, who has 23 on the year.

In addition to extending his team’s lead, Ramirez also extended his on-base streak to 28 games with the swing. The streak is a career-high, and is the third-longest active streak in MLB. Across the streak he is batting .284 (29-for-102) with nine homers and 19 RBI.
