Box Score: Rays 10, Indians 3

Justin Masterson has been really strong the past month, but tonight, he was unable to keep that streak going. Masterson failed to keep his team in the game and did not escape the fifth inning as he allowed eight runs with the Tribe falling 10-3 to Tampa Bay at Progressive Field. The Rays struck for two in the first on a Ben Zobrist homer, though Cleveland answered back with two of their own on a ground out double play and balk. After that, it was Masterson allowing two more in the third on a Jose Lobaton two-run single, two in the fifth prior to exiting on a Luke Scott homer, and having two more charged to him thanks to Nick Hagadone after leaving the game. The Indians fell to three games behind the White Sox with the loss. They send Ubaldo Jimenez to the mound tomorrow night against Matt Moore for the Rays.
