PHOTO GALLERY: Eighth-inning Jose Ramirez homer gives Cleveland Indians series win over Toronto Blue Jays
The Indians rallied again to beat Toronto, 3-2, to win the teams’ weekend (2-1) and season series (4-3). The Tribe won on a walkoff (3-2) on Friday and lost (6-5) by a run on Saturday. The club’s AL Central lead remains seven games, as the Tigers beat Boston in Detroit.
Jose Ramirez, who tied Friday’s game in the ninth with a solo shot, hit a two-run homer in the eighth on Sunday to give the Tribe the lead. Cody Allen earned his 24th save.
Ramirez has hit safely in 19 of 20 August games, and is hitting .383 with five homers and 15 RBI this month.
Down, 2-0, the Tribe rallied in the sixth, on three consecutive singles by Carlos Santana, Jason Kipnis and Francisco Lindor, to cut the lead to 2-1. But a double play and strikeout later and Toronto starter Marcus Stroman had escaped.
Corey Kluber struck out eight in 6.2 innings, allowing those two runs. He lowered his ERA to 3.13 and continued to be a contender in, if not the leader of, the AL Cy Young race.

GALLERY: Cleveland Indians pitchers Cody Allen and Bryan Shaw donate a turf wiffle ball field to Providence House
Cody and Mallory Allen, Bryan and Kristen Shaw, and the Cleveland Indians have donated a turf wiffle ball field to the Providence House, a crisis nursery located in Cleveland’s Ohio City neighborhood, with an official unveiling this morning.
Allen, Shaw and the Indians have partnered with The Motz Group to build the wiffle ball field, which will be located in Providence House’s back yard. Additionally, wiffle balls, bats and other equipment will be donated along with the field. Allen and Shaw spent time this morning playing wiffle ball and visiting with kids during the field unveiling!
Providence House is a nonprofit organization that strives to end child abuse and neglect by protecting at-risk children, empowering families in crisis and by building safer communities. Cleveland Indians players and the Wives Association are long-time volunteers and supporters of Providence House.
Mike Napoli hit a go-ahead two-run homer in the seventh to help the Indians beat the Tigers, 5-3, in front of a sellout crowd of 34,163 at Progressive Field on Monday night/Tuesday morning.
With their 10th straight win over the Tigers to start the season, the Indians now lead the AL Central by 6.5 games. The Tribe also is only one game behind the Texas Rangers for best record in the American League.
Cleveland has already clinched the season series against Detroit, and the club’s current 12-game home winning streak is the longest by any American League team since Cleveland won 14 straight games at Progressive Field April 3-May 10, 2011.
Carlos Santana drove in Napoli in the second with an RBI single, and Francisco Lindor followed with two sacrifice flies. Steven Moya homered for the Tigers in the fifth, and Nick Castellanos followed with a two-run shot in the sixth.
Danny Salazar got a no-decision, allowing three runs in 5.2 innings while striking out six. His AL-best ERA climbed to 2.36.
Napoli is second on the team in homers, behind Carlos Santana’s 18. Napoli hit 18 homers in 2015 and 17 in 2014, in nearly double the amount of games. Twelve of his homers this year have come at Progressive Field.
The Indians won the club’s ninth straight at home on Monday night, a come-from-behind 7-4 win over the Rays. The Tribe’s AL Central lead is at a game, with KC idle on Monday.
Francisco Lindor and Juan Uribe hit homers in the eighth – Lindor a solo shot leading off and Uribe a two-run shot later – to break open a 4-4 game after seven. Uribe has hit homers in three straight games for the first time in his career.
The Tribe got on the board in the fourth, as Carlos Santana drove in Francisco Lindor with an RBI fielder’s choice; Lindor had singled, moved up on Mike Napoli’s single and stole third. Rajai Davis and Jason Kipnis later pulled off a double steal after Kipnis’ fifth-inning RBI single.
Carlos Santana hit his 15th homer in the sixth, again tying him for the team lead with Napoli; the homer traveled an estimated 440 feet, per MLB’s Statcast technology, landing above the shrubs in the center field batter’s eye at Progressive Field. In the seventh, Yan Gomes doubled and Davis got him home with a sac fly to tie it at 4.
Josh Tomlin pitched seven innings, allowing four runs. Bryan Shaw struck out the side in the eighth, and Cody Allen pitched a scoreless ninth for his 14th save.
The Indians entered Monday’s game second in the AL and third in baseball in steals (51), and after stealing three more bases in three tries on Monday, the club’s success rate (now 79.4%) is third in the AL and baseball.

It was quite the homestand at Progressive Field, as we won 5 of 6 against division rivals Detroit and Kansas City.

Zach McAllister, Bryan Shaw and Cody Allen combined to throw 3.2 scoreless innings to seal the victory.
