ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., April 7 (UPI) -- Carlos Santana provided five hits, including a home run, and three RBI Sunday and Cleveland hammered five round-trippers in its 13-0 rout of Tampa Bay.

Lonnie Chisenhall crushed a three-run homer and Michael Bourn chipped in a solo shot for the Indians, who avoided a three-game road sweep at the hands of the Rays.

The Tribe banged out 17 hits.

Justin Masterson (2-0) recorded just his second win in 14 career starts against the Rays, hurling seven innings of two-hit ball with eight strikeouts and three walks.

Tampa Bay ace David Price (0-1), meanwhile, experienced his first career loss against Cleveland, surrendering eight runs on 10 hits with three walks over five frames.
