Tribal Tattoo

Indians 14, Orioles 7 : Tribal Tattoo – Jason Kipnis homers twice & drives in a career high 6 runs as the Indians rout the O’s in Cleveland. Kipnis homers in the 1st (#1) & adds a 3-run shot (#2) to put the Indians back ontop in a 5-run 4th as both teams go back & forth until Cleveland busts it open in the late innings. Rio Ruiz adds a 2-run shot (#4) in the 2nd & Trey Mancini adds a 3-run shot (#9) to put the O’s ahead in the 3rd before Kipnis’ 2nd homer. Trailing by 1, the Indians then break it open w/ 8 runs in their last 3 innings, including 2 more by Kinsler in a botched rundown that allows 2 runs to score in the 7th. The Orioles bullpen has now given up 121 runs, the most in the league.
Baltimore loses for the 3rd time in 24 hours & has now dropped 7 of 8.
Game 2 is tonight.
