CLEVELAND (AP) – Pinch-hitter Lonnie Chisenhall connected for a three-run homer and had five RBIs as the Cleveland Indians salvaged the finale of a three-game series by beating the Los Angeles Dodgers 12-5 on Thursday.
Chisenhall’s 415-foot drive in fifth inning on the second pitch from Ross Stripling opened up a four-run lead for Josh Tomlin (4-8), who struggled after being staked to a 5-0 lead. Chisenhall added a two-run single in the sixth.
Cleveland stopped the Dodgers’ six-game winning streak and moved back over .500.
Edwin Encarnacion homered off Rich Hill (3-3), reached base five times and scored four runs as Cleveland won for just the second time in 11 interleague games.
