Cleveland blanks Philadelphia, extends win streak to four games

If only every day was the first day of the month for the Cleveland Indians.

Undefeated on the first of the month, the Indians ran their winning streak to a season high four games, after blanking the Philadelphia Phillies and sweeping the two game series. Cleveland jumped out early on Phillies pitcher Cliff Lee in the second inning and again in the third.

By the end of his night, Lee allowed nine hits and four earned runs in six innings. Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer allowed one hit through five innings of work, picking up his first win on the season, and his first win as a member of the Cleveland Indians.

Ryan Raburn continued his hot streak since the injury to Michael Bourn, going 4 for 5 with two runs batted in. In the two game series, Raburn finished 7 for 9 with two homers and 5 RBIs.

Cleveland moves to within a game of going .500 on the season and next plays Friday against the Minnesota Twins.
