ST PETERSBURG -- Tampa Bay had the look of a team on the brink of a comeback Saturday night. A breakdown in the eighth inning ended any such thoughts as the Indians pushed across four runs to take a 7-3 win over the Rays at Tropicana Field with 24,717 watching.
In defeat, the Rays (27-24) lost for the sixth time in their last eight games, and they are 4-9 in their last 13 games since they were a season-high eight games over .500 on May 13. The team is 3-7 since holding a season-high three-game lead in the American League East.

The key pitch for the Giants was the one just before Lucroy's bunt single scored Braun from third to give Milwaukee a 3-2 victory.
