CLEVELAND  — Corey Kluber threw a three-hitter and the Cleveland Indians defeated the Tampa Bay Rays 6-0 on Tuesday night for their fifth straight win.

Kluber (7-7) took a one-hitter into the ninth before Brad Miller and Evan Longoria singled with one out. Kluber retired the final two hitters for his third career shutout.

Kluber bounced back from allowing a career-high eight runs and nine hits in five innings against Kansas City in his last start. The right-hander, who won the AL Cy Young Award in 2014, struck out nine and walked two.

Juan Uribe homered for the fourth straight game, a solo shot in the eighth. Jose Ramirez hit a two-run homer, also in the eighth.

The AL Central-leading Indians won their 10th straight game at Progressive Field.
