CLEVELAND (AP) — Mike Aviles hit a three-run homer in the second and added the go-ahead single in the eighth inning to help the Cleveland Indians beat the Colorado Rockies 7-6 on Saturday.

Pinch-hitter Jason Kipnis started the rally with a leadoff walk off Rex Brothers (2-3). After Lonnie Chisenhall’s sacrifice, Aviles lined a hit to right field and Kipnis slid home ahead of Charlie Blackmon’s throw. Chisenhall had a two-run homer in the sixth.

The Indians handed their bullpen a 6-2 lead through six innings, but Corey Dickerson’s solo homer and Blackmon’s three-run shot tied it in the seventh.

Bryan Shaw (2-1) pitched 1 2-3 scoreless innings. Cody Allen worked the ninth for his third save as the Rockies fell to 2-6 on their nine-game trip.
