Kipnis returns with pinch-hit RBI
ANAHEIM -- Jason Kipnis, who missed five straight games with neck pain, pinch-hit in the ninth inning in Monday's 6-2 win over the Angels, knocking in a run with a sacrifice fly. He's expected to be back in the starting lineup Tuesday.

After seeing Kipnis work out prior to the game, manager Manny Acta said the left-handed-hitting Kipnis was available off the bench and would ready to make a full-fledged return Tuesday against Angels righty Zack Greinke.

Kipnis is a welcome addition to the heart of the order. He is hitting .259 with 11 homers and 59 RBIs in his first full season in the big leagues. He's also stolen 23 bases, tops among American League second baseman.
