Anthony DeSclafani fired seven innings of one-run ball for the win. After Cleveland scored four runs in the ninth, Raisel Iglesias came in and recorded the final two outs for his 18th save.
Jason Kipnis hit a two-run homer during the four-run ninth for the Tribe, which has dropped three in-a-row on the heels of a five-game winning streak. Mike Clevinger suffered the loss.
