Lonnie Chisenhall went 2-for-4 with a homer and three RBI in the Indians' loss to the Angels on Monday.

Chisenhall slugged a two-run homer in the fifth inning off Angels starter Jered Weaver and then got to Weaver again in the sixth for an RBI single. "Lonnie Baseball" has slowed down considerably since his exceptional first half, but he still boasts a strong .291/.354/.459 overall season slash line with 13 homers and 55 RBI in 123 games.

Sunday's series finale between the Indians and Royals has been suspended in the 10th inning due to inclement weather and will resume on September 22 in Cleveland.

Just before play was suspended, Lonnie Chisenhall delivered a pinch-hit two-out, two-run double in the 10th inning to give the Tribe a 4-2 lead. In the meanwhile, the Royals will remain a 1/2 game ahead of the Tigers in the American League Central.

Lonnie Chisenhall's slump continued, as he went hitless with a pair of strikeouts in four at-bats as the Indians were blanked by the Reds on Thursday, 4-0.

Chisenhall is now 12-for-73 (.164) since the start of the second half. The third baseman had been an offensive dynamo for the Indians for much of the season. He is still slashing a respectable .296/.360/.466 with 11 home runs and 46 RBI.
Aug 7 - 9:57 PM

Lonnie Chisenhall hit a three-run homer off the Reds' Alfredo Simon in the Indians' win Monday.

After hitting .209 with one homer in 86 at-bats in July, Chisenhall has started August with two homers in four games. He's run hot and cold all year, but maybe this is the start of a new streak for him.
Aug 4 - 10:12 PM

Lonnie Chisenhall hit his tenth homer of the season on Friday against the Rangers.

In a game where the Indians had sixteen hits and put up twelve runs, Chisenhall's home run was somehow only one of three extra-base hits. It's nice to see the home run, as Chisenhall was ice cold in July, hitting just .209/.313/.256. On the whole, he's still slashing a respectable .309/.375/.479, which tells you just how spectacular those first three months of the season were.

Lonnie Chisenhall went 0-for-4 at the plate in his return to the lineup Tuesday.

Chisenhall missed the previous two contests due to illness, but it shouldn't be an issue going forward. The third baseman his hit just .219/.318/.307 over 38 contests since his three-homer game back on June 9.
Jul 30 - 5:44 AM

Lonnie Chisenhall (illness) remained out of the Indians' lineup Sunday.

Lonnie Chisenhall has been scratched from the lineup Saturday versus the Royals due to illness.

Jul 26 - 6:56 PM

Lonnie Chisenhall went 1-for-4 with a walk, a two-run homer and two runs scored in Tuesday's 10-3 win versus the Dodgers.

The young third baseman has come out of nowhere to become one of baseball's most consistent offensive performers this year. He posted a .901 OPS while only receiving 47 at-bats as a part-timer in April, put up a monster 1.020 OPS over 83 at-bats in his coming out party in May, and held strong with a .920 OPS in 90 June at-bats. We can't anticipate that he'll continue to slap up .900-plus OPS' each month, but this is certainly a nice start to July.
Jul 2 - 1:42 AM

Lonnie Chisenhall singled off Felix Hernandez in the fifth inning on Sunday, providing what would be the Tribe's lone hit in a losing effort against the Mariners.

Chisenhall finished the afternoon 1-for-3. He has been an absolute force at the plate this season, slashing .350/.404/.562 with eight homers and 36 RBI in his first 66 games, taking control of the team's starting job at third base.
Jun 29 - 8:14 PM

Lonnie Chisenhall went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's loss to the Angels.

After a torrid start to the month of June, Chisenhall had hit the skids, going hitless in 16 plate appearances over his last four games. He broke out of it, homering off of Matt Shoemaker in the fourth inning for his eighth of the season. If he had enough plate appearances to qualify, Chisenhall would be the league's leading hitter. He's slashing .368/.420/.589 with 33 RBI in 209 PA.
Jun 17 - 11:01 PM

Lonnie Chisenhall went 0-for-4 with a strikeout Friday against the Red Sox.

It looks like he's human after all. Chisenhall's 0-fer snapped a nine-game hitting streak. He's still hitting .384 through 54 games.
Jun 13 - 11:13 PM

Lonnie Chisenhall turned in a career game Monday, going 5-for-5 with three homers and nine RBI as the Indians destroyed the Rangers 17-7.

That's a career game for just about anyone. Since 1914, the only other players with five hits, three homers and nine RBI in a game were Cincinnati's Walker Cooper in 1949 (6-for-7, 3 HR, 10 RBI), Brooklyn's Gil Hodges in 1950 (5-for-6, 4 HR, 9 RBI) and Boston's Fred Lynn in 1975 (5-for-6, 3 HR, 10 RBI). Even throwing out the other requirements, he's the first guy to drive in nine runs in a game since the Mets' Carlos Delgado in 2008. He's the first Indian to hit three homers since Shin-Soo Choo in 2010 and the first to drive in nine runs since Chris James in 1991.
Jun 10 - 12:50 AM

Lonnie Chisenhall went 2-for-4 with two runs scored in Sunday's win over the Rangers.

Chisenhall continues to swing a hot bat, as he's hit in six straight games and eight of his last nine. That includes five multi-hit games that have raised his line to .365/.413/.538. It appears that the 25-year-old is finally paying off on the promise he's showed for years.
