Double-digits were the order of the day on Tuesday. Across the major leagues, five different teams scored at least 10 runs, but the Cleveland Indians topped them all, smashing seven homers in a 14-2 squashing of the Philadelphia Phillies.
Cleveland right fielder Ryan Raburn wasn't among Hallady's victimizers; he waited until the relievers came on, belting a two-run long ball in the fifth and a solo blast in the seventh. Earlier, Raburn singled and scored as the Indians plated four runs in the fourth inning.
After a slow start, Raburn's caught fire, racking four home runs in his past two games. In the series finale with Kansas City on Sunday, he went deep twice with four RBI. All of his homers and seven of his eight RBI have come in the past two games.
The Indians host the Phillies for game two of the interleague series Wednesday at 7:05 pm EDT.
The two teams combined for 29 hits against a total of 11 pitchers. Rickie Weeks drove in five runs, going 3-for-5 with a single, double and his second home run of the season, a three-run, eighth inning belt that advanced the Brewers' 9-8 lead to the final tally.
Earlier, Weeks walked and scored in the second inning, doubled and scored in the third and singled home a pair of runs in the fourth.
Entering the game batting an anemic .167, Weeks batted from the five hole in the order, responding with his best game of the season, his average magically levitating to a nearly-reasonable .191.
The Brewers will be seeking the home sweep and a possible look at first place in the division Wednesday afternoon at 1:10 pm EDT.
