Indians Rally for Split in Milwaukee Behind Brantley; Indians 7, Brewers 5

Michael Brantley went 4-for-5 in leading the Indians back from a three-run deficit in a 7-5 win in Milwaukee on Wednesday.

The Tribe went 3-2 on a quick five-game road trip after the All-Star break, improving to 26-22 on the road – the third-best road record in the Majors.

The Brewers knocked Cody Anderson – who’d allowed just three earned runs in his first four big-league starts – out after 2.2 innings. But the Tribe pen held Milwaukee scoreless until the ninth, allowing the team’s offense to get going.

Down, 4-1, Jason Kipnis and Francisco Lindor reached as the first two batters in the third, and Brantley followed with a three-run homer. Brantley had an RBI single in the fifth, Yan Gomes had an RBI single in the seventh and Carlos Santana had an RBI double in the ninth.

Since the All-Star break, Brantley is 9-for-19 with 9 RBI. Kipnis, meanwhile, is 9-for-21.
