Indians 10, Phillies 4: Kluber’s at-bat inspires
Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis celebrates after hitting a three-run homer in the eighth inning.
PHILADELPHIA — In a long season, a baseball team can draw inspiration from the oddest things. Such as watching an American League pitcher swing the bat in an
interleague game at a National League park.
Starting pitcher Corey Kluber lined out to left-center field yesterday afternoon in the second inning after an impressive at-bat against Cole Hamels. Thus inspired, the Cleveland Indians players who get paid to hit rolled over the Philadelphia Phillies 10-4 at U.S. Citizens Park to win for the eighth time in their past 11 games.
