GOODYEAR, Ariz.– Spring training is off to a good start for Indians veteran Jason Kipnis.
The second baseman has hit six home runs in as many exhibition games.
His latest was a two-run blast to right in the third inning on Tuesday. The Indians fell to the Reds, 6-7.
Kip’s six homers ties the club record for most in a Cactus League season since the Tribe moved spring training to Goodyear in 2009. The feat was also accomplished by Yan Gomes in 2016 and Shelley Duncan in 2012.
