Indians option Gomez to minors

CLEVELAND (AP) — The Cleveland Indians have optioned Jeanmar Gomez to Triple-A Columbus one day after he won his major league debut.

Gomez allowed two unearned runs in seven innings Sunday, leading the Indians to a 7-2 win over the Detroit Tigers. The 22-year-old right-hander became the first Cleveland pitcher since 2008 to win his first game. He gave up five hits, walked one and struck out four.

To replace Gomez, the Indians recalled reliever Jess Todd from the Clippers. Todd went 3-2 with a 2.75 ERA in 34 appearances for Columbus. Gomez made 19 appearances for the Indians last season, going 0-1 with a 7.40 ERA.
