MLB: Spring Training-Cleveland Indians at Milwaukee Brewers Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

Here’s to a great week!

Indians 6, Brewers 2

Box Score | recap

Cleveland’s ace, Corey Kluber, struck out five in his second start of spring training. Jason Kipnis went deep again, his fifth this spring. Sounds good to me.

Kipnis continues torrid start |

The second baseman is 8-14 this spring with five homers. From Jack Magruder:

Health helps. Kipnis spent time on the disabled list with shoulder and hamstring issues last season, holding him to a career-low 90 games.

”He is a good hitter,” manager Terry Francona said. “When somebody gets hurt, the [fans] forget. But we need him to be healthy, because he’s that kind of player that can change your team.”
