ARLINGTON, Texas -- Lonnie Chisenhall has driven in nine runs, tying a Cleveland record, and hit three homers among his five hits against the Texas Rangers.

Chisenhall had two-run home runs in the second and fourth innings Monday night before hitting a three-run shot down the right field line in the eighth to give the Indians a 17-6 lead.

Chisenhall becomes only the fourth major league player since RBIs became a statistic in 1920 to have at least five hits, nine RBIs and three homers in a game, and he is the first since Boston's Fred Lynn in 1975, according to the Indians.

The other nine-RBI game in Cleveland history was by Chris James against Oakland on May 4, 1991. The last player to drive in nine runs in a game was the New York Mets' Carlos Delgado in 2008.

It was the first three-homer game for the Indians since Sept. 17, 2010, by Shin-Soo Choo, who now plays for the Rangers.

Chisenhall also had an RBI single in the first and a run-scoring double in the sixth.

The homers and RBIs were career highs for Chisenhall. He had five hits earlier this season at Toronto.
