Lindor, Uribe homer to lift Indians over Rays

CLEVELAND (AP) — Francisco Lindor and Juan Uribe homered in the eighth inning and the Cleveland Indians beat the Tampa Bay Rays 7-4 on Monday night.

Lindor hit the first pitch from Erasmo Ramirez (7-5) into the lower deck in right field for his eighth homer of the season, breaking a 4-all tie. Uribe homered in his third straight game, a two-run shot off Ramirez.

Carlos Santana also homered for the AL Central-leading Indians, who have won four straight.

Evan Longoria’s two-run homer in the first and a solo home run by Brad Miller in the sixth helped Tampa Bay build a 4-2 lead, but the Rays dropped their fifth in a row.

Bryan Shaw (1-3) struck out the side in the eighth, and Cody Allen pitched the ninth for his 14th save.
