LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Cleveland Indians turned an unorthodox triple play that required two replay reviews, and David Murphy broke out of a 1-for-44 slump with three hits in a 10-3 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Tuesday night.

Lonnie Chisenhall started things off for Cleveland with a two-run homer against Josh Beckett. Murphy, Nick Swisher and Yan Gomes also drove in two runs apiece for the Indians, who won a nine-inning game with double-digit runs for the fifth time this season after getting held to one hit in back-to-back shutout losses to the Mariners and Dodgers.

This was the Dodgers’ seventh attempt at their first four-game winning streak of the season. They haven’t won more than three in a row since a six-game stretch from Aug. 25 to Sept. 3 last season.
