Michael Brantley powers Indians to win with two homers Tuesday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Left fielder Michael Brantley had a big night in the Indians' 11-6 victory over the Brewers on Tuesday. The star outfielder went 3 for 4 with a pair of home runs, four RBI and three runs scored. He also added his 14th stolen base of the year, as he completely filled up the box score.

The two dingers give Brantley 11 on the season. He popped a two-run shot in the fourth inning, and another two-run blast in the eighth.

Over his last 10 games, Brantley is batting .357 with three home runs and 10 RBI. He is also 14-for-15 in stolen base attempts overall this season.

Simultaneous return of Kipnis, Brantley creates issue for Indians
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The desire of Terry Francona to use top hitters Michael Brantley and Jason Kipnis as designated hitters upon their return to the Indians has created a dilemma.

Brantley and Kipnis, both of whom have been sidelined with shoulder issues, should be ready to roll Monday in Boston. But only one, of course, can DH. That could result in Kipnis being pushed back to Tuesday, per MLB.com.

The former received a cortisone shot Friday and joined the club in Minneapolis on Saturday. Kipnis is eligible to come off the disabled list Monday.

"I don't even know if we'd activate [Kipnis] or not [Monday]," Francona said. "It's going to be close. He certainly can be activated, but he's not ready to play second. ... I think Kip's kind of chomping at the bit, which I don't blame him."
