Cleveland won the first game of the Ohio Cup series, and the Reds had several outstanding efforts in the game itself. The Guardians prevailed thanks to Josh Naylor’s 17th home run and Steven Kwan’s crucial two-run double. Cleveland took a lead thanks to Kwan’s double and Naylor’s single in the third inning. Triston McKenzie threw 5 1/3 innings while giving up two runs. Emmanuel Clase survived a difficult ninth inning to get his 20th save.

Jeimer Candelario’s RBI double in the first inning gave Cincinnati the early lead in the contest. But Cleveland’s
Freeman, who plays center field, made back-to-back outstanding catches that stopped the Reds from adding more runs.
