Thriving Indians, Kipnis look to top Rangers again

Jason Kipnis was swinging a mighty frigid bat earlier this month.

It has since heated up and the 32-year-old second baseman will strive to help the Cleveland Indians continue their high-scoring ways when they close a four-game series on Thursday against the Texas Rangers in Arlington, Texas.

The Indians scored 10 runs in each of the past two wins after losing the series opener. Kipnis followed up a three-RBI performance on Tuesday by smacking two homers and driving in four runs on Wednesday as the Indians prevailed 10-4 for their 10th win in their past 14 games.
