Ramírez homers in back-to-back at-bats, Guardians beat Padres

Cal Quantrill dominated his previous team in seven brilliant innings, Dominican José Ramírez drove the ball out of the park in consecutive at-bats and his compatriot Óscar González homered again for the Cleveland Guardians, who defeated the Padres 7-0 on Wednesday from San Diego.

The Guardians, leaders of the AL Central, defeated Blake Snell and swept the two-game series. In addition, they took the season series 3-1.

The Padres only scored nine runs during a stay at their park against Washington and Cleveland. They fell one short of the undesirable club record, for the fewest in a six-game homestand.

San Diego, which is fighting to hold on to the third wild-card spot, was booed by what was left of a crowd of 30,409.

Quantrill (10-5) pitched at Petco Park for the first time since being acquired by Cleveland in a nine-player trade that sent Mike Clevinger to San Diego at the pandemic-shortened 2020 season deadline.

The right-hander, selected eighth overall in the 2016 draft, kept San Diego scoreless, limited it to five hits and came out ahead in two risky situations he got into. He struck out six and walked one.

For the Guardians, the Dominicans José Ramírez 3-3, with two runs scored and three RBIs; Amed Rosario 5-1; Óscar González 4-1 with one scored and one produced.

For the Padres, Colombian Jorge Alfaro 3-0.
