CLEVELAND (AP) — César Hernández hit a three-run triple, José Ramírez drove in two runs and Aaron Civale pitched seven solid innings as the Cleveland Indians swung back after being no-hit for the second time in 24 days by beating the the Cincinnati Reds 9-2.

The Indians became the 18th team to be no-hit twice in the same season Friday as Wade Miley shut them down for the majors’ fourth no-no in 2021.

There would be no more history as the Indians scored six times off Luis Castillo, who was also hurt by the Reds making two errors.

Civale improved to 5-0.
