CLEVELAND (AP) — José Ramírez's second two-run homer of the game snapped a tie in the eighth inning and sent the Cleveland Indians to a 4-2 win over the Kansas City Royals after Cy Young winner Shane Bieber struck out 12.

Ramírez's one-out shot off Greg Holland gave the Indians their first home win in 2021 after they were shut out Monday. Earlier, Ramirez connected for a two-run homer in the sixth.

Bieber allowed just three hits in 6 1/3 innings. He's struck out at least 8 in 14 straight starts.

Salvador Perez homered for the Royals.
