CLEVELAND, Ohio (AP) – David Murphy hit a three-run homer and had four RBIs as the Indians took advantage of outdoor batting practice and San Diego’s sloppiness to beat the Padres 8-6 on Tuesday night in their delayed interleague series opener.

Murphy’s shot in the fourth inning off Tyson Ross (0-2) gave the Indians a 6-2 lead. He added an RBI double in the sixth and is 6 for 8 with a homer and five RBIs in his past two games.

Corey Kluber (1-1) bounced back from a rough season debut in Oakland and pitched six solid innings. John Axford stopped San Diego’s rally in the ninth for his third save.

The Indians were rained out for the second time Monday and have endured wintry conditions so far at home. They’ve only had BP on the field twice and have scored 15 runs in those games.
