PHILADELPHIA — Jason Kipnis hit a three-run homer, Nick Swisher and Mike Aviles also went deep to back Corey Kluber, and the Cleveland Indians beat the Philadelphia Phillies 10-4 today.
Corey Kluber (3-2) gave up three runs and six hits in six innings. He rebounded nicely after allowing eight runs in 4 2-3 innings against Detroit in his previous start.
A day after rookie Jonathan Pettibone held the Indians in check, Cole Hamels got roughed up by one of the league's highest-scoring offenses. Cleveland had been in a slight funk, scoring just seven runs in its previous four games.
