Rays Vs. Indians Final Score:Tampa Bay Tattoos Cleveland, 10-3

The Rays beat the Cleveland Indians on Friday night with a 10-3 score. Tampa didn't waste any time getting on the scoreboard, either. Ben Zobrist hit a two-run homer in the first inning to give his team an early 2-0 lead, but the Tribe matched that run production in the bottom half of the inning with scores on a fielder's choice and a balk.

This game was really decided, though, in the fifth inning when the Rays scored six runs to put themselves way ahead of the Indians.

Especially worth noting: DH Luke Scott broke his 0-41 hitless streak with his fifth inning homer to right center that brought in B.J. Upton.
