Tribe Walks to Series Win; Indians 5, Reds 3

The Indians drew four bases-loaded walks and got another dominant start out of Carlos Carrasco to beat the Reds, 5-3, in 11 innings on Sunday, giving Cleveland the series win.

The game marked the first time since 1969 that the Indians drew four bases-loaded walks. Jason Kipnis added a bases-loaded sac fly in the 11th for the final margin.

Kipnis and Michael Brantley (two RBI walks Sunday) each reached base eight times in this three-game series.
