Cleveland Indians' Edwin Encarnacion reacts to a strike thrown by Tampa Bay Rays relief pitcher Ryne Stanek in the eighth inning of a baseball game, Wednesday, May 17, 2017, in Cleveland. Jose Alvarado delivered two scoreless innings of relief and Alex Colome recorded his 10th save. The hard-throwing five-year veteran has failed to make it past the fifth inning in three of his last four tries, registering only one quality start during this stretch.

Yesterday evening, I picked up a win in the Rays-Indians series opener with the over hitting fairly early in the ballgame, but for tonight's contest, I foresee the opposite outcome.

Tomlin's performance ballooned the ERA for Cleveland's starters to a league-high 5.17.

RANGERS 9, PHILLIES 3: At Arlington, Texas, Andrew Cashner finally won in his home state, pitching seven solid innings to help Texas match the longest winning streak in the majors this year at eight games. They had been held to one run or fewer in seven of their last 12 head-to-head matchups the the Tribe.

The first two Rays batters in the top of the second also struck out, but then the Rays hitters settled in, with singles by Tim Beckham and Daniel Robertson, a double by slugging Jesus Sucre, and a attractive three run homer by our own red hot Mr. Dickerson. Francisco Lindor added a home run in the eighth.

Ubaldo Jimenez (1-2) allowed five runs in five innings. Tomlin seemed to have the momentum, but it quickly slipped away as Tampa Bay bunched five straight hits including a three-run homer by Dickerson for a 4-0 lead.

More impressive is that Dickerson is hitting left-handed pitchers, which he has had issues within the past.

Notes: The Yankees' ceremony to retire Derek Jeter's No. 2 jersey and dedicate his plaque in Monument Park was the most-viewed program in the NY area during its time period on Sunday night and was the most-watched non-game in the history of the YES Network, which launched in 2002.

In 2014, Zimmer played Single-A ball at both Mahoning Valley (Short Season) and Lake County (Full), and then, spent 2015 between Single-A Lynchburg (High Level) and Double-A Akron.

The Rays did it the old-fashioned way, combining a strong seven-inning start from surging Alex Cobb and some potent power-hitting, with Corey Dickerson, Logan Morrison and Jesus Sucre going deep.

He is the second Ray to hit a pair of homers in a game to homer twice in a game joining Tim Beckham who has done it twice this season. He has lasted at least 6 innings in his last three outings, allowing just 5 earned runs in that span. The runs were Neshek's first allowed this season.

After allowing a leadoff single to Dickerson, Tomlin struck out the next five batters.

The Rays took the lead with a four-run second.

When an aggressive team gets going, they get going collectively, as Tomlin saw on Wednesday. Tanaka (5-2) left to jeers with NY trailing 8-0, the most runs he allowed in his major league career.

The Cleveland Indians are hopeful they can win back to back American League Central crowns although they are not in that type of groove yet.
