Rays Run Over Indians 11-3

CLEVELAND (AP) — Evan Longoria and Yunel Escobar hit two-run homers Sunday, leading the Tampa Bay Rays to an 11-3 win over the Cleveland Indians.

James Loney added a two-run double for the Rays, who bounced back a day after their six-game winning streak ended.

Indians manager Terry Francona was ejected in the fifth inning by plate umpire Bill Welke for arguing a strike call with Nick Swisher batting. It was his first ejection as Cleveland’s manager.

Jeremy Hellickson (3-2) allowed three runs in five innings.

Zach McAllister (4-5) lasted only 4 1-3 innings — his shortest start of the season — and gave up five runs.
