St. Petersburg, FL -- Carlos Santana went 5-for-5 with a home run and three RBI and Mark Reynolds went deep twice and drove in four runs as the Cleveland Indians knocked around David Price and the Tampa Bay Rays, 13-0, to salvage the finale of a three-game series at Tropicana Field.

The Indians, after getting shut out in the first two games of the set, came alive with 17 hits -- five via the long ball. Lonnie Chisenhall belted a three-run homer and Michael Bourn added a solo shot in the rout.

Price (0-1) came in unbeaten against the Tribe, but was touched for eight runs on 10 hits and three walks over five innings. The reigning AL Cy Young Award winner had allowed just seven earned runs and 22 hits in six previous starts against them.

His counterpart, Justin Masterson, had little success against the Rays coming in, having gone 1-7 with a 7.74 ERA in 13 career meetings. But Sunday saw Masterson (2-0) toss seven innings of two-hit ball with eight strikeouts and three walks.
