In Saturday's win, Chisenhall's fourth-inning solo shot to right field off Houston starter Mike Fiers gave Cleveland a 2-0 lead to back Indians starter Mike Clevinger, who took a no-hitter into the seventh inning.
Chisenhall singled in the second and came around to score the game's first run on Jason Kipnis' single, and finished the day 2-for-4 with two runs.
"He's done a good job, and not just the last two games. He has given us a lift since the day he came back," Francona said. "He's been doing a good job for us."
Chisenhall began the season on the 10-day disabled list with a right shoulder sprain. After rehabbing at Double-A Akron and Triple-A Columbus, he returned April 13.
In his last six games, the Indians outfielder has four home runs and eight RBIs, batting .368 (7-for-19) in that span.
