Cleveland Indians – Cleveland, Ohio

CLEVELAND (AP) – Trevor Bauer overcame a shaky first inning and pitched into the ninth, Francisco Lindor was 4 for 4, and the Cleveland Indians beat the Miami Marlins 8-3 on Saturday night.

Jason Kipnis hit a two-run homer and Coco Crisp – playing his first game since being acquired from Oakland – had three hits, helping the AL Central leaders to their fifth straight win.

Bauer (10-6) shut down the Marlins after giving up three runs and three hits in the first. The right-hander didn’t allow another hit until Ichiro Suzuki led off the ninth with a single. The right-hander allowed three runs and four hits in 8 1/3 innings.

Lindor doubled in the first and third, singled in the fourth and added an RBI single in the sixth.

Kipnis hit his 22nd homer in the first off Marlins ace Jose Fernandez (13-8), who gave up a career-high 12 hits and seven runs in 5 2/3 innings.
