The win for the Tribe puts them at 16-12-3 on the year, all three ties have been with the Reds.

Kevin Plawecki (3-for-4, HR, 4 RBI) finished a single short of a cycle, crushing a two-run homer in the bottom of the seventh inning that provided the final margin.

He also recorded a two-run triple in the three-run 5th frame.

Carlos Santana added three more hits to raise his spring average to .415 and Jake Bauers went 2-for-3 with a triple and RBI.

Bauer had the longest outing of any Tribe pitcher this spring, going 6.2 innings.

The final game in Arizona for the Indians take place Sunday, as the team will travel to Glendale to take on the Chicago White Sox.

Number five starter in the rotation Shane Bieber will start for the Indians.
