The RBI were the first of Palacios’ career after the rookie infielder was called up from the minors Monday.
“Amazing. Everything I ever dreamed of,” Palacios said. “Didn’t feel any added pressure. Just trying to do what I do in every at-bat, put a quality at-bat together and hopefully get the next man up.”
Steven Kwan had two hits in his return to the lineup as the Guardians won their second straight following a seven-game losing streak. The rookie outfielder, batting .354 in his first big league season, had missed five games with a sore hamstring.
Bieber allowed seven hits, striking out seven and walking one. Irvin allowed one run in six innings with four strikeouts. The left-hander has a 1.13 ERA over his last three appearances.
