Indians drop round one of the Battle of Ohio

Shin-Soo Choo responded well to his new spot in the batting order but the Indians still lost Friday night, dropping a 7-4 decision to the Reds at Progressive Field.

Batting second for just the second time in his career, Choo went 3-for-4 with a pair of home runs and three RBIs, but the Reds broke a 4-all tie in the sixth with two runs off Aaron Laffey.

It was Cleveland’s fifth straight loss.
