Can the Cleveland Indians avoid a series loss at home to the Tampa Bay Rays when the two meet this afternoon today at 12:10PM ET?

"It was one of my top ones, to be able to hit it clean like that and to know it's gone", he said. "I don't think so".

DETROIT - Tyler Collins snapped an 0-for-30 skid in style, hitting two home runs for Detroit in a win over Baltimore.

Lonnie Chisenhall hit a three-run homer when Cleveland scored five times in the first off Chris Archer (3-2).

The right-hander took a 6-1 lead into the sixth, but Edwin Encarnacion broke an 0-for-18 skid with a two-run homer to cap a three-run rally. We'll get a better idea about the extent of the injury tomorrow.

Carlos Carrasco was also fighting to get through his innings, giving up single tallies in each of the three frames, though he had some margin to work with.

Jose Alvarado retired all six batters he faced and Alex Colome pitched out of a ninth-inning jam for his 10th save.

After allowing a leadoff single to Dickerson, Tomlin struck out the next five batters. Cleveland called up its No. 1 pick in 2014 from Triple-A Columbus earlier Tuesday.

The Rays took two of three in both Boston and Cleveland for their first winning trip since going 5-3 through Toronto, Detroit and Miami last May 16-24, and improving to 21-22 overall heading into their first off-day since April 27, having played 20 straight days. With a runner on, he allowed the Rays' fifth home run of the night, this one to Tim Beckham, to extend the deficit to 6-1.

Indians manager Terry Francona says he's confident it's only a matter of time until Encarnacion starts producing. He relied on a ton of breaking stuff, good control, and a fastball that hovered around 90 - 92. The bats carried the load and overcame an uneven start from Jake Odorizzi who gave up all four runs on seven hits and a BB including a two run homer over six frames.

"We really need to simplify things, start pitching to our strengths a little bit more and make sure we navigate lineups the right way".

Josh Reddick doubled in the sixth off Junichi Tazawa (1-1), and after a walk and a hit batter loaded the bases, Gurriel pulled a 94 miles per hour fastball over the fence with two out for a 4-1 lead.

"I feel like I'm getting back to my old self, Dickerson said".

Danny Farquhar and rookie Ryne Stanek, hitting 100 miles per hour on the stadium gun, teamed for the eighth. Most of this season's stats are way above average for Dickerson and the outfielder is certainly proving doubters wrong now that he has outshined his own performances with the Rockies playing for the Rays in his second season with the club. Ramirez just rejoined the rotation after Blake Snell was sent to the minors.

Yasmani Grandal hit a two-run double in the first and Yasiel Puig singled in a pair of runs in the sixth as the Dodgers jumped on Johnny Cueto (4-3).

Carrasco will not have to miss a start after experiencing a left pectoral strain on May 15 in the fourth inning of the Indians' 8-7 victory over Tampa Bay.

Josh Tomlin is scheduled to start against Tampa Bay on May 17 in the final game of the homestand.
