CLEVELAND, OH- The Indians won their second straight against the visiting Astros Thursday night with a 4-3 victory over Houston at Progressive Field. 

The big play of the game came in the seventh inning with Houston leading 3-2 when Cleveland shortstop Francisco Lindor smacked a 2-run bomb to put the Tribe on top for good. After the game, Lindor, who finished 1-4 from the plate, told reporters he knew it would be a home run as soon as it left his bat and noted that it was great to get starting pitcher Corey Kluber the win. 

Kluber (3-1) allowed 3 runs on 8 hits walking 4 and striking out 10 batters in 7 innings of work. DH Edwin Encarnacion went 1-3 with a solo home run, while Abraham Almonte also finished 1-3 with a solo shot in the game. 

Cleveland (12-9) will begin a 3-game home stand with Seattle on Friday before heading on the road for 10-straight away from Progressive Field.
