Cleveland had a promising rally cut short in the seventh. Yan Gomes doubled to the base of the wall in right to plate Chisenhall. David Murphy, who singled, went to third. A baseball got loose from the Reds bullpen beyond the wall in right and went in the vicinity of the cut-off man. Murphy seemed confused at the time, thinking the ball on the outfield grass was in play. He was thrown out trying to get back to third. That was the first out of the inning and Cueto retired the ensuing two batters to escape the frame.
