Lonnie Chisenhall entered the season as the Cleveland Indians' biggest question mark. Today, he's their biggest exclamation point.
Chisenhall clobbered three home runs and collected nine RBI as the visiting Tribe destroyed the Texas Rangers 17-7 last night.
No player has racked up five hits, three homers and nine RBI in a single game since Fred Lynn of the Boston Red Sox in 1975.
Even though he didn't have a full-time job at the start of the season, Chisenhall is hitting .385 and might become impossible to keep off the All-Star team.
Michael Brantley and George Kottaras also hit home runs for the Indians. Scott Atchison (3-0) got the win in relief of T.J. House.
