CLEVELAND, June 18 (UPI) -- Lonnie Chisenhall and Casey Kotchman each provided three RBI Monday in the Cleveland Indians' 10-9 interleague slugfest win over Cincinnati.

Chisenhall and Kotchman each belted a two-run homer and both delivered run-scoring hits in the decisive sixth inning, when the Indians grabbed a 9-7 lead off Sam LeCure (2-2).

Shin-Soo Choo added a solo shot and an RBI double for the Indians, who banged out 13 hits en route to a victory in the opener of their three-game Ohio rivalry series against the Reds.

Joe Smith (5-1) earned the victory, holding Cincinnati to one run over 1 2/3 innings in relief of starter Derek Lowe, and Chris Perez nailed down the victory with his MLB-best 22nd save.

Reds starter Mat Latos was pounded for seven runs on eight hits over four full frames.

Jay Bruce went 3-for-4 with a homer and two RBI while Brandon Phillips added three hits, including an RBI double, and scored three times for National League Central-leading Cincinnati, which has a six-game winning streak snapped.
