Carlos Carrasco left early with an injury, but five relievers kept the lead and helped the Cleveland Indians hold off the Tampa Bay Rays 8-7 Monday night.

Zimmer was promoted to the Major League roster on Tuesday after outfielder Abraham Almonte was placed on the 10-day disabled list because of a strained right biceps that could keep him out for the next month.

"He'll have an MRI, but it's going to be awhile for him".

"He's OK. He really is", Indians manager Terry Francona said.

Carrasco was removed from the game in the fourth inning with left pectoral tightness. It was the Rays' seventh home run off of an Indians starting pitcher in the three-game series With Dan Otero on the mound, Beckham added an RBI-single. "I don't know that just by showing up and say, 'Well it's a new day.' Yeah that's a good way to start, but we need to do some things better".

If Carrasco is still feeling discomfort Tuesday, he would be a candidate for the DL as well.

While the Rays found their swing on the road, Edwin Encarnacion remains in a hitting funk for Cleveland. For the first time this season, Encarnacion was moved out of the cleanup spot in the order. Tanaka (5-2) left to jeers with NY trailing 8-0, the most runs he allowed in his major league career. He is hitting.206 with five homers and 11 RBIs.

"I went from being really, really anxious about it to shaking my head", Hinch said. I think he can do enough to lift Tampa to an upset. He's not slamming helmets or anything like that. He's OK and he's going to be OK, it's just not been the best six weeks. Then Evan Longoria hit a grounder right at Jose Ramirez, but instead of running to third base and throwing to first, Ramirez tried to start a 6-4-3 double play, but threw to second wildly because of the runner going to third.

Zimmer drove in 14 runs, scored another 22 and drew 14 walks against 43 strikeouts. He has lasted at least 6 innings in his last three outings, allowing just 5 earned runs in that span.

Rays: RHP Alex Cobb is 2-2 in four regular-season starts against Cleveland.

Given who the starting pitchers were tonight, you'd expect a taut, low-scoring game with Andrew Miller and Cody Allen finishing the game with little margin for error.

Indians: Cleveland begins a three-game series in Houston on Friday with Trevor Bauer making his 100th career start. The bats carried the load and overcame an uneven start from Jake Odorizzi who gave up all four runs on seven hits and a BB including a two run homer over six frames.

Collins hit a solo homer in the second inning and a three-run shot in the fifth, giving Detroit's offense a boost while Miguel Cabrera sat out with a sore left side. It also gets Tampa Bay to within a game of.500 as the Rays come back home for a seven-game stand against the New York Yankees and Los Angeles Angels.

Cobb wavered a bit in the third, allowing two runs after back-to-back doubles (one that Dickerson didn't make much of a play on) and a one-out single, then putting two more on before escaping.

"Cleveland's 'pen is the match of any 'pen in the majors", Cash said.
