Last night, the Rays brought their power to Progressive Field as they blasted five home runs en route to a 6-4 victory over the Cleveland Indians. Tim Beckham, Colby Rasmus, Derek Norris, and Corey Dickerson all went deep with Dickerson mashing two homers. He now leads the majors with multi-hit games this season.

Meanwhile the Rays pitching was top notch. Jake Odorizzi ran into some trouble in the sixth and allowed a total of four runs, while Jose Alvarado extremely impressed with two perfect innings and Alex Colome worked a scoreless ninth to secure the save.
- The Indians and Rays will be back at it in just a few hours with the first pitch slated for 12:10. The Rays aren’t televising the game, but MLB Network will air the Indians broadcast.
- Brad Miller was a late scratch from the game last night as he dealt with a tweaked abdomen. Matt Duffy has suffered yet another setback in his rehab.
- Jose De Leon threw five no-hit innings during his second rehab outing yesterday
- Tim Tebow is doing what everyone expected, bringing in loads of cash to the minor league stadiums he plays at
- Miguel Cabrera and Albert Pujols are two of the greatest players of this generation and both certain to wind up in the Hall of Fame. However, they’re both looking to pad their stats at they reach the twilight of their careers
