Reds Manager Price Ejected Before 1st Pitch, Indians Win (Image 1)

After Reds manager Bryan Price was ejected before the first pitch, Corey Kluber threw eight effective innings and led the Cleveland Indians over Cincinnati 2-1 Saturday for their fifth straight win.

The Reds lost their season-high seventh in a row.

Price was tossed by umpire Jim Reynolds after the exchange of lineup cards. They got into a lengthy argument that carried on as the Indians took the field – the dispute likely stemmed from Friday night, when several Reds were upset with plate umpire Manny Gonzalez’s strike zone.

Kluber (2-5) worked around constant trouble, but recorded his third strong start in a row. He allowed nine hits, struck out seven and didn’t walk a batter.

Cody Allen pitched the ninth for his ninth save.

Tony Cingrani (0-1) walked Roberto Perez to start the eighth. Following a force play, Jason Kipnis lined a double to left-center that scored Michael Bourn.
