Wed, 24 Jun 2015 16:29:06 -0700

Cleveland Indians 2B Jason Kipnis extended his hitting streak to 19 games in a win Wednesday, June 24.

Kipnis is batting .500 (54-for-108) with 17 doubles, three home runs and 15 RBI during his 28-game home hitting streak.

Fantasy Tip: Kipnis ($5,500; or 11.0% of cap) is setting the table atop manager Terry Francona's lineup, but unfortunately he is one of the only ones hitting in C-Town. For FantasyScore purposes, since he is leadoff he isn't posting many RBIs, although Monday was certainly a solid fantasy performance.
