CLEVELAND — Jason Kipnis homered and drove in three runs, and the Cleveland Indians used six pitchers in a 6-2 win over the Milwaukee Brewers on Wednesday night.

Kipnis, who leads the American League with a .325 batting average, gave Cleveland the lead with a two-run double with the bases loaded in the second inning. He added a solo homer in the eighth.

Rookie right-hander Cody Anderson, starting in place of the injured Carlos Carrasco, allowed two runs in 4 1/3 innings. Carrasco, who leads the Indians in wins, was placed on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday with a sore right shoulder.

Jeff Manship (1-0) worked 1 1/3 innings for his first win since April 26, 2014, when he was pitching for Philadelphia against Arizona.

Jimmy Nelson (10-10) allowed five runs and walked eight in 3 1/3 innings in losing for the first time since July 10.
