ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., April 6 (UPI) --
Alex Cobb held Cleveland to four hits over 7 1/3 innings Saturday and Tampa Bay rolled to a 6-0 victory, its second straight shutout of the Indians.
Matt Moore combined with three relievers to produce a two-hitter against the Indians Friday and Cobb kept things going. He walked three and struck out six while throwing 103 pitches.
Cobb retired 15 of the last 18 batters he faced.
The Tampa Bay offense was highlighted by a two-run homer from Kelly Johnson in the fourth and a two-run double from James Loney in the eighth.
Trevor Bauer (0-1) was called on to make an emergency start for the injured Scott Kazmir and wound up walking seven in taking the loss. He managed to give up only three runs in five innings.
