The theory behind the Indians' offense is to get as much production from as many spots in the lineup as possible. No dead spots, please.

It's one thing not to have Miguel Cabrera in the middle of the lineup, but that's no reason to neglect the other eight spots.

Indians fans are painfully aware that the theory doesn't always work, but Wednesday night in the desert it did. The Tribe's well-rounded attack, scoring from just about every nook and cranny of the lineup, wore down rookie right-hander Chase Anderson on the way to a 6-1 victory over the Diamondbacks at Chase Field.

The victory ended a four-game losing streak.

It certainly helped that Corey Kluber pitched like the May version of Corey Kluber, throwing seven scoreless innings and striking out eight to win his first game in five starts. The offense, however, was just as impressive.

Not only did the Indians score from the top to the bottom of the lineup, they scored while Kluber was still in the game. In his last two starts, Kluber has received only two runs of support while he was still on the mound.

Leadoff hitter Michael Bourn tripled and scored twice in his first two at-bats. Asdrubal Cabrera delivered him with a sacrifice fly in the first for a 1-0 lead. After Bourn tripled again to start the third, Michael Brantley scored him with a grounder to first for a 3-0 lead.

Bourn has more triples, seven, than doubles, six. After taking a 1-for-7 in Tuesday's 9-8 loss in 14-innings, Bourn had to be feeling better about his game Wednesday night.

"We scored early with Bournie setting the tone with those two triples," said manager Terry Francona. "We didn't score in bunches, but we kept scoring one run an inning.
