Kipnis and Santana shine in 7-2 win over Cubs

CHICAGO-- The Cleveland Indians beat the Chicago Cubs for a second night in a row. The score was 7-2.

The Tribe now leads the series 3-1.

The Cubs were on the board first, but Carlos Santana countered with a solo shot. That knotted the game at 1-1 in the second inning.

The second RBI of the night for the Tribe came from Corey Kluber. A base hit from the pitcher knocked in Lonnie Chisenhall.

Later, Jason Kipnis hit a double and scored on a Francisco Lindor single.

The score was 3-1at the end of the 4th inning.

Cleveland's Carlos Santana hit a ball so hard it knocked the glove off Cubs reliever Mike Montgomery's hand. Lindor had just walked leading off the sixth when Santana smashed a comebacker.

Montgomery retrieved the ball with his bare hand and threw wide to first. Santana overran the bag but dove back in ahead of the tag, putting runners on first and second.

Lindor later scored on Chisenhall's sacrifice fly.

In the seventh inning, Chicago native Kipnis hit a three-run homer. That made the score 7-1. Later in the seventh, Dexter Fowler hit a solo shot to cut the Tribe's lead to 7-2.

Game 5 is Sunday at 8:15 p.m. at Wrigley Field in Chicago. If necessary, the Tribe will return to Cleveland for Games 6 and 7 on Tuesday and Wednesday.
