by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/5/2015) Making just his third start in the last nine games, Indians slugger David Murphy went 1 for 4 with a two-run double in the 6-2 win over the Royals on Thursday. Murphy has been seeing sporadic playing time lately, and has been struggling at the plate.

Murphy's double went over the head of Royals center fielder Lorenzo Cain to give the Indians a 4-0 lead.

"I knew I hit it well, but he's such a good center fielder," said Murphy, per the Cleveland Plain Dealer. "You don't exhale until you see the ball fall. Especially in that situation with runners on, you want to get them in.

In that nine-game stretch, Murphy is batting .250 (5 for 20) with Thursday's two-bagger accounting for his only extra-base hit in that span.

Indians CF Michael Bourn not starting Tuesday vs. Cardinals


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Murphy went 4 for 4, improving his average to .298. He hit his third double of the season.

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

"I've thought about that a lot," Francona said, "trying to figure out when is right and when is not. At some point, he'll play the outfield."

Swisher's playing time will impact David Murphy, who is likely to see more time on the bench. "We told Murphy, 'You're going to have to be a little patient,'" Francona said. "And he will."

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

He's replaced by David Murphy, who makes his third start of the year in right and first since April 18. 

Murphy will bat fifth in the order. Third baseman Lonnie Chisenhall moves up one spot to replace Moss at cleanup. It's Chisenhall's first time in the four-hole this season.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

David Murphy returns to the starting lineup as the designated hitter, while Nick Swisher gets a rest after playing in two straight since returning from a DL stint.

Michael Bourn, who will be benched against lefties for the near future, was back in the lineup batting seventh and playing center field.
