ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) Lonnie Chisenhall has driven in nine runs, tying a Cleveland record, and hit three homers among his five hits against the Texas Rangers.
Chisenhall had two-run home runs in the second and fourth innings Monday night before hitting a three-run shot down the right field line to give the Indians a 17-6 lead in the eighth.
The other nine-RBI game in Cleveland history was by Chris James against Oakland on May 4, 1991.
It was the first three-homer game for the Indians since Sept. 17, 2010, by Shin-Soo Choo, who now plays for the Rangers.
Chisenhall also had an RBI single in the first and a run-scoring double in the sixth.
The homers and RBIs were career highs for Chisenhall. He had five hits earlier this season at Toronto.
