Ben Francisco homered twice to continue his amazing career success opposite Andy Sonnanstine, but the Tribe couldn't take advantage of the Rays being forced to play without a designated hitter in David Huff's big league debut. Huff exited as the Rays rallied for five in the fourth. A disputed call in the eighth hurt Cleveland's comeback.
