The Cleveland Indians had a field day with the Cincinnati Reds pitching staff as they recorded their second straight lopsided victory in two days.

On Monday, the Reds scored 15 runs on 19 hits and walked away with a 15-6 victory.

Cincinnati led 4-0 in the third, but the Indians stormed back for four in the bottom of the frame, led by an RBI double off the bat of Francisco Lindor scoring two runs.

After taking a 7-4 lead in the bottom of the fourth on RBI singles from Jason Kipnis and Mike Napoli, the Reds scored two in the fifth to get within one at 7-6. But the Indians scored eight more runs in three innings to pull away for good for the victory. The final scoring barrage was highlighted by home runs from Yan Gomes and Marlon Byrd, two sac flies and an RBI double from Michael Martinez.

On Tuesday, the Indians hitting attack continued as they scored 13 runs on 17 hits to win their second straight by a score of 13-1.

The Reds managed just one run on five hits through 7.1 innings against Indians starter Danny Salazar, who also struck out eight in earning his fourth victory on the season.

After a scoreless first, the Tribe added four runs in the bottom of the second and three in the third highlighted by a two-RBI single off the bat of Kipnis and an RBI double from Rajai Davis scoring two runs.

In the fifth, the Indians blew the game open with a five-spot as they scored four straight runs on four bases loaded walks.

On Wednesday, the Reds Brandon Finnegan will look to stop the bleeding as he faces off against Indians starter Mike Clevinger, who will be making his major league debut.
