Juan Nicasio allowed two runs and four hits over 5 2-3 innings, striking out six.
Troy Tulowitzki had three hits and Chris Nelson a two-run double for Colorado.
Minor leaguer Beau Mills hit two homers and Michael Brantley added another for Cleveland.
Indians starter Derek Lowe allowed two runs over three innings.
