ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - Erik Bedard gave up one hit in six shutout innings, James Loney had three hits and drove in two runs, and the Tampa Bay Rays broke a four-game skid Saturday night with a 7-1 victory over the Cleveland Indians.
Winning his second straight start after 15 consecutive starts without a win, Bedard gave up a double to Ryan Raburn in the second inning, Cleveland's only hit until Lonnie Chisenhall led off the ninth with a single off Grant Balfour.
Juan Carlos Oviedo took over in the seventh for Bedard (2-1) and pitched two perfect innings.
Zach McAllister (3-3) gave up eight hits and five runs in 4 1-3 innings for the Indians, who had won four straight. McAllister is winless in four starts since winning three straight.
