Indians Vs. Reds Final Score: Tribe Goes Down 7-1 To Cincinnati

The Cleveland Indians had nothing to match the run production of the Cincinnati Reds in their series opener on Tuesday, as the Tribe fell 7-1.

Unfortunately for Cleveland, their reliable bullpen was anything but that against Cincy. Indians relief pitcher Tony Sipp gave up a costly home run to Joey Votto in the seventh inning, but that was just before right-hander Jeremy Accardo spotted the Reds three runs in the eighth, which insured the momentum would remain in Cincinnati's favor.

Indians right-hander Jeanmar Gomez took the loss after giving up two runs (one earned) on six hits over five innings of work. Reds pitcher Johnny Cueto picked up the victory after being charged with one run on six hits against the Tribe, who didn't score after the first inning.
