 Miami,  FL (Sports  Network) -  Jason Kipnis'  two-run single  in the  seventh
 inning  lifted  the Cleveland Indians  to a 4-3 win  over the Miami Marlins on
 Saturday.
 
 With  the bases loaded and one out, Kipnis laced a 2-2 slider to center field.
 Drew Stubbs scored easily on the play, but center fielder Jake Marisnick fired
 a  bullet to  the plate as Michael  Bourn slid home. The throw beat Bourn, but
 Rob Brantly was unable to block the plate and Bourn slid across safely.
 
 Kipnis  finished the game  3-for-4 with three RBI and Bourn added two hits,
 three runs scored and three stolen for the Indians, who have won nine of their
 last 10 games.
 
 "When I can run it is always good and always does good for the offense. It can
 help us win a game," said Bourn.
 
 Cody Allen (5-1) threw 1 2/3 scoreless innings to pick up the win. Chris Perez
 allowed a run in the ninth, but stranded a pair of runners in scoring position
 to nail down his 16th save of the season.
 
 Cleveland  starter  Zach McAllister  allowed  two  runs  on three  hits  while
 striking out seven over 5 1/3 innings.
 
 Christian  Yelich, Ed  Lucas and Greg Dobbs  each had one RBI for the Marlins,
 who had a three-game winning streak snapped.
 
 Dan  Jennings  (1-2) was  charged with  the loss after  giving up the go-ahead
 single in the seventh. Starter Jacob Turner allowed two runs on six hits while
 striking out six over six innings.
 
 Logan Morrison led off the ninth with a double then scored on Dobbs' pinch-hit
 single  to  right. Adieny  Hechavarria then  beat out  a sacrifice bunt before
 Marisnick moved the runners into scoring position.
 
 Brantly ripped a grounder right to Nick Swisher at first for the second out of
 the  frame. Placido  Polanco followed with a  line drive to center, but it was
 hit right at Bourn to end the game.
 
 The  Indians  took a  1-0  lead  in the  first  inning.  Bourn singled,  stole
 second,  then  moved to  third on  Swisher's ground  out. Kipnis followed with
 a base hit to right to push Bourn across.
 
 Cleveland  scored  another run in  the third to make  it 2-0. Bourn opened the
 frame  with a  single, stole  second  then moved  to  third on  a wild  pitch.
 Marlins'  catcher  Brantly tried  to catch  Bourn at third,  but his throw was
 off target and skipped into left field allowing him to score easily.
 
 The  Tribe looked to  add to their lead in the fifth. Kipnis reached on a one-
 out  single. Asdrubal  Cabrera then lifted a fly ball to shallow center field.
 Marisnick  made  a diving  attempt, but could  not come up  with the catch and
 the  ball  rolled into right  field. Marisnick  quickly retrieved the ball and
 delivered  a strike to  the plate that caught Kipnis as he was diving for home
 for the final out of the inning.
 
 Miami  finally managed to  get a hit off McAllister in the sixth, then quickly
 tied  the  game. Brantly  broke up  the no-hit bid  with a  base hit to center
 before  coming around  on Yelich's  double to  center. Lucas  followed with  a
 single to left-center that scored Yelich without a throw to tie the game.
 
 The  Marlins  loaded  the  bases  with  two  outs  later  in  the  frame,  but
 Hechavarria lined out to center to end the threat.
 
 "We had a few close calls tonight. I couldn't tell if they were right or
 wrong, I just know they didn't go our way," said Marlins manager Mike Redmond.
