ASSOCIATED PRESS

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla — Josh Tomlin won his second straight start, Nyjer Morgan and Michael Bourn both drove in two runs and the Cleveland Indians beat the Tampa Bay Rays 6-5 today.

Tomlin (2-0), who pitched just once in the big leagues last season after right elbow surgery in 2012, allowed two runs and six hits over six innings in his second outing this year.

Morgan had an RBI infield single that rolled to a stop near the line between home and third before Bourn hit a two-run double as the Indians took a 3-1 lead in the second. Morgan also hit his first major league homer since July 30, 2012, an eighth-inning solo shot that made it 6-2.

Matt Joyce homered and had two RBIs for the Rays, who went 1-5 on their homestand. Chris Archer (2-2) gave up four runs and eight hits in five-plus innings.
