Roberto Perez homered while Jose Ramirez and Lonnie Chisenhall had two hits apiece for Cleveland.

Graveman (10-8) extended his scoreless streak to 16 innings before Perez homered in the seventh. Graveman allowed six hits and one run over 6 2-3 innings with two strikeouts and two walks.

Trevor Bauer (9-6) gave up five runs and nine hits over 6 2-3 innings. Bauer, who fanned a career-high 13 in his last start, struck out three.
