Brantley homers with 4 RBIs as Indians top Brewers 7-5

MILWAUKEE (AP) -

Michael Brantley homered, doubled and drove in four runs, and Cleveland closer Cody Allen withstood a rocky ninth to help the Indians hold on for a 7-5 win over the Milwaukee Brewers on Wednesday.
   Allen entered the game with a three-run lead. But a string of 5 1-3 scoreless innings for the bullpen ended with Adam Lind's RBI double with one out in the ninth. A single for Aramis Ramirez put runners on first and third before Khris Davis hit into a game-ending double play started by third baseman Giovanny Urshela.
   Allen pumped his fist on the mound after picking up his 20th save. Austin Adams (1-0) threw 1 1-3 innings of scoreless relief.
   Cleveland snapped an eight-game losing streak dating to 2001 in the interleague series with the Brewers.
