It was all but over after the second inning, as starter Zach McAllister surrendered back-to-back home runs to Josh Willingham and Justin Morneau, then gave up five more runs on a single from Ben Revere, a double from Joe Mauer and a single from Morneau. He was replaced by Josh Tomlin, who promptly gave up a three-run homer to Ryan Doumit.
McAllister gave up six hits, nine runs and struck out three in 1 2/3 innings.
In the fourth, Morneau put Cleveland further behind with another home run, a two-run shot. Mauer made it 13-1 with an RBI-double in the sixth.
Carlos Santana's two-run home run made it 13-3 in the sixth, but that's as close as the Indians would get. .Denard Span scored on a fielder's choice in the eighth and that was it.
A stat illustrating the Indians' recent futility, courtesy of MLB.com's Jordan Bastian:
The 88 runs allowed by Indians over last 10 games are most in any 10-game stretch by CLE since allowing 89 from Aug. 23-29, 1938.— Jordan Bastian (@MLBastian) August 7, 2012
Cleveland will try to put a stop to the streak again on Tuesday at 7:05 p.m. ET.
