ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Five of rookie Steven Kwan’s career-high five RBIs came on his first career grand slam in the eighth inning and Aaron Civale allowed two runs on three hits in five innings as Cleveland beat the Texas Rangers 10-4.
They clinched the AL Central Division title about 15 minutes before their game ended, when the second-place Chicago White Sox lost to Detroit.
It’s Cleveland’s first division title since 2018, back when they were known as the Indians. Adolis Garcia and Josh Smith drove in Texas’ runs on sacrifice flies. It was Garcia’s 96th RBI this season.
