Rays 4, Indians 2

B.J. Upton started the scoring with his second homer in as many games in the fourth, and Jason Bartlett drove in two in the fifth to support Matt Garza, who threw 120 pitches and held the Tribe scoreless before giving up a pair in the sixth but escaped further damage to pick up the win.
