Cabrera's 2 homers power Indians over Reds 12-4

Asdrubal Cabrera went 5-for-5 with two homers and five RBIs as the Cleveland Indians completed a three-game sweep of Cincinnati with a 12-4 win Sunday over the reeling Reds, who for the moment have lost bragging rights as Ohio's best team.

Cabrera hit a two-run homer in the first inning off Edinson Volquez (3-2) for the Indians, who did early damage after winning the series' first two games with late-inning comebacks. Cabrera added a solo homer in the sixth to give Cleveland an 8-4 lead.

Michael Brantley, Cabrera and Shin-Soo Choo - the top three hitters in Cleveland's lineup - went a combined 10 for 12 with six runs and nine RBIs.

Carlos Carrasco (3-2) gave up four runs in six-plus innings, handing the Reds their fifth straight loss.
