Tampa Bay Rays' Kevin Kiermaier jumps to catch a fly ball hit by Cleveland Indians' Jason Kipnis for the last out in the ninth inning of a baseball game, Wednesday, May 17, 2017, in Cleveland. So far, through 40 games against lefties Dickerson is hitting.362/.412/.596 with six doubles, one triple, one home run and two RBIs. The 21-year-old Alvarado, who is making the jump from Double A to the big leagues, pitched two ideal innings, retiring all six batters he faced in the seventh and eighth innings.

"I think that was the main thing, is just when the mistakes started happening, or if they strung together one or two hits that kind of fell in, like a shark smelling blood, they just kind of started swinging", he said. When his night was all said and done, he was tagged with five earned runs on six hits and three walks in just 3.2 innings of work.

In the bottom of the sixth inning he allowed a 2-run homer to Edwin Encarnacion. They had been held to one run or fewer in seven of their last 12 head-to-head matchups the the Tribe.

Right-hander Nick Goody began the season at Triple-A Columbus, but he's made an impact since joining the Indians bullpen. He hit cleanup in the first 36 games. In the fifth, with a runner on second, Cobb struck him out again on a 3-2 fastball that did not prompt a swing.

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. Yan Gomes had an RBI double in the third.

Almonte was removed in the fifth with a sore right shoulder, an injury that occurred during an at-bat last week. That doesn't count his victory in the 2013 American League wild card game, when he pitched 6 2/3 scoreless innings in the Rays' 4-0 victory.

The Rays took the lead with a four-run second. YES's coverage from 6-7:30 p.m. averaged 724,000 viewers, the network said Monday, with 952,000 tuning in from 7:15-7:30 p.m., when Jeter gave his speech to the Yankee Stadium crowd. Salazar had struggled mightily to escape the first inning in his previous starts. Last year Rays hitters had a club-record 1,482 SO, second most in AL history. The home runs tied his high.

The Indians tried to push back against Cobb in the third as Lonnie Chisenhall and Zimmer opened with consecutive doubles to make it 6-1.
