The Indians won the club’s ninth straight at home on Monday night, a come-from-behind 7-4 win over the Rays. The Tribe’s AL Central lead is at a game, with KC idle on Monday.

Francisco Lindor and Juan Uribe hit homers in the eighth – Lindor a solo shot leading off and Uribe a two-run shot later – to break open a 4-4 game after seven. Uribe has hit homers in three straight games for the first time in his career.

The Tribe got on the board in the fourth, as Carlos Santana drove in Francisco Lindor with an RBI fielder’s choice; Lindor had singled, moved up on Mike Napoli’s single and stole third. Rajai Davis and Jason Kipnis later pulled off a double steal after Kipnis’ fifth-inning RBI single.

Carlos Santana hit his 15th homer in the sixth, again tying him for the team lead with Napoli; the homer traveled an estimated 440 feet, per MLB’s Statcast technology, landing above the shrubs in the center field batter’s eye at Progressive Field. In the seventh, Yan Gomes doubled and Davis got him home with a sac fly to tie it at 4.

Josh Tomlin pitched seven innings, allowing four runs. Bryan Shaw struck out the side in the eighth, and Cody Allen pitched a scoreless ninth for his 14th save.

The Indians entered Monday’s game second in the AL and third in baseball in steals (51), and after stealing three more bases in three tries on Monday, the club’s success rate (now 79.4%) is third in the AL and baseball.

The Indians swept the White Sox on Sunday on Jose Ramirez’s 10th-inning walk-off single, the Indians second walk-off win of the weekend. (Carlos Santana hit a walk-off homer on Friday.)

The Tribe completed the sweep in front of 25,269. The Tribe drew 84,247 for the weekend series against the White Sox.

Rajai Davis – who had four hits and two stolen bases — led off with a double, and Jason Kipnis bunted him to third. The Sox intentionally walked Francisco Lindor and Mike Napoli, and after Carlos Santana popped out, Ramirez singled past Chicago first baseman Jose Abreu.

Down 1-0, Napoli tied it in the first with a sac fly for his 36th RBI at home this year; he entered the game tied for second in the American League in that category. After the Sox took the lead on Melky Cabrera’s solo shot in the fourth, the Tribe answered again, with Juan Uribe’s second homer in as many days after returning from an injury suffered last weekend in Anaheim.

Carlos Carrasco went 7.1 IP, his second-longest outing of the season, striking out six and allowing just two earned runs.
