Plesac (3-2) surrendered a season-high five runs in seven innings. He was making his third start since being recalled from the team's alternate training site following a violation of the team's coronavirus protocols.

Jose Ramirez homered for Cleveland for the second straight game, but the Indians dropped their fifth straight. They have scored six runs over their past four games.
