CLEVELAND, Ohio – Jason Kipnis found out about his swing in Detroit last week, and now the second baseman of the Cleveland Indians is destroying all his frustrations.
Kipnis, who fought a prolonged slump over the course of last season, was beaten by a RBI triple in front of Tigers reliever Joe Jimenez, who scored Jose Ramirez for the eighth time as the tribe beat Detroit in Progressive Field scored a 7: 6 win.

"I had a plan and was waiting for him again," said Kipnis Detroit and I pronounced it out loud calling the memory right there.
Kipnis later shot himself by Tiger's Catcher Bobby Wilson to obtain an insurance run for Jake Bauer's RBI Victim Fly. Slipping into the home plate threw Wilson in a shattering collision. Since his epiphany last week, Kipnis has caught fire on the plate and collected three homeruns and 12 RBI.
Brad Hand allowed a run on a Christin Stewart RBI single in ninth place, but Tyler Naquin picked up a line drive from Nicholas Castellanos, doubling Stewart first to short the Tigers' Rally. Hand pulled Miguel Cabrera on a pop to Kipnis in the shallow middle for his 21st rescue in 21 chances.
After that, Naquin's playful capture was the talk of the Indian clubhouse.
"It's as if he wanted himself, then he had the spirit to come up and make a strong, accurate throw," said manager Terry Francona. "That was an incredible game."
Naquin's home race against Tigers starter Matthew Boyd led to a gap of three to two. It was Naquin's fourth Homer and his third in 12 games since returning from the injured list on June 4th.
Jordan Luplow added his ninth Homer to lead the sixth Kipnis sacrificed Bunt and returned home with a single from Roberto Perez RBI against Boyd.
The Indians, who pitched pitcher Trevor Bauer, could not recapture the form Detroit held scoreless on four matches at Comerica Park on Sunday. He allowed Brandon Dixon a solo home run in the second and an RBI double against Castellanos in the third before Gordon Beckham's RBI double scored a 3-2 lead for the Tigers in the fourth.
Bauer opened the fifth goal with a double victory A solo homer run by Stewart and three straight hits followed, which were crowned by Niko Goodrum's RBI double 5-2 and ended the right-handed night after 91 pitches.

"When I tried to adapt and move on to something else, they seemed prepared for everything," Bauer said.
Called Francona assistant Nick Goody, who accompanied Brandon Dixon to load the bases, but then concentrated again to get out of the traffic jam. Goody prevailed on Harold Castro and prompted Bobby Wilson to play against Beckham shortly before the foul on Perez.
Nick Wittgren, Tyler Clippard and Adam Cimber (W, 3-2, 3.71) teamed with Goody to place 12 consecutive Detroit thugs after Dixon's run in fifth. Cleveland's Bullpen came in with the best ERA in the 3.36 majors, finishing second in the strike-to-walk ratio (3.20).
"They were great and had to be," Francona said.
Carlos Santana gave the Indians a 2-0 lead when he took the lead for the 15th time following a lead from Lindor. The All-Star American League First League Finalist has extended his track record to 16 games and has beaten Homer with an OPS of 1,114 since May 14, 11.
