Carlos Carrasco leaves start for Indians with pectoral tightness

Miller yielded a run for the first time this year, snapping his streak of 15 shutout appearances and 18 scoreless innings to start the season.

Corey Dickerson hit a three-run homer - his third homer in two days - and Alex Cobb controlled Cleveland over seven inning as Tampa Bay busted out the bats in a 7-4 win over the Indians on Wednesday to complete the Rays' most successful trip since last May.

Dickerson hit solo home runs in the third and fifth off Danny Salazar (2-4). It happened just after Cueto's high, inside pitch flew wildly past catcher Buster Posey allowing a Dodgers run.

After right fielder Lonnie Chisenhall doubled to deep left-center field, Zimmer took a 2-1 pitch from Rays starter Alex Cobb midway up the 19-foot wall in left field for a double, a hit that brought around Chisenhall for the Indians' first run of the game.

Jesus Sucre also homered for the Rays, who hit 10 in Cleveland, the most in team history for a three-game series.

"When the mistakes started happening, they strung together one or two hits that fell in, and then it was like a shark smelling blood", said Tomlin. Goody, Boone Logan (1-0), Bryan Shaw, Andrew Miller and Cody Allen (10 saves) combined to throw 5 1/3 innings while allowing two runs.

While the Rays found their swing on the road, Edwin Encarnacion remains in a hitting funk for Cleveland.

Indians pitchers struck out 16 Rays' batters including the last eight in a row. Encarnacion is hitting.108 (4-for-37) with runners in scoring position, which goes nicely with his 2-for-23 performance for this homestand.

O'Donnell called it harder than it looks to handcuff a person who resists arrest, but said reaching for the neck can be risky . The Associated Press reported that the Office of Internal Oversight and Constitutional Policing are investigating the death.

"He's OK. He really is", Indians manager Terry Francona said.

Morrison's solo home run off Tomlin in the third inning made it 5-0, and an RBI single by Beckham off reliever Dan Otero later in the inning extended the Rays lead to 6-0.

The Indians are off Thursday before opening a brief five-game trip to Houston and Cincinnati.

"I think we have to make it correct themselves", he said. "We probably haven't pitched to our strengths as well as we can, and I think some of the numbers show that. The more mistakes you make to a team that's kind of free-swinging like that, the more barrel (of the bat) they're probably going to find". "This number doesn't usually correlate with what's going on over here'". "I don't know that just by showing up and say, 'Well it's a new day.' Yeah that's a good way to start, but we need to do some things better". Daniel Robertson and Derek Norris against Francisco Liriano of the Toronto Blue Jays on May 5th.

"This is the best I've felt since I came back from my surgery". "Colome's my guy so I'm happy I was able to save him a run".

Indians: OF Abraham Almonte will be out for at least three weeks with a strained right biceps. An MRI exam revealed the strain. He will take the place of LHP Blake Snell, who was optioned to minors last week, in the rotation.

McCullers limited Miami to three hits in six innings and lowered his ERA to 2.65.
