No one was more impactful than Jesus Ortiz in the 9-1 Cleveland win over Kansas City. Ortiz, who is tied for 3rd in the AL in bases on balls with 91, was 4-4 with 2 home runs and 2 singles, while adding 5 RBI and scoring twice. Cleveland reliever Frank Franz picked up the win, upping his record to 4-3. Jeremy Roehrich absorbed the loss. The Guardians sit in last place in the American League Central Division with a record of 53-84.

With Cleveland leading 3-1 in the bottom of the fourth, Ortiz hit a cutter from Jeremy Roehrich for a 3-run home run. It was his 28th home run of the season and put the Guardians ahead, 6-1.

"I like our mindset right now," said Cleveland manager Jazz Eck.
