Bombs away: Indians pound 7 HRs, rout Phillies
The Cleveland Indians hit seven home runs to rout the Phillies, 14-2, at Progressive Field Tuesday night in what may have been the most distressing start of struggling starter Roy Halladay’s young season.
Halladay surrendered three of the Indians’ seven home runs on the game.
Halladay lasted just 3 2/3 innings. He gave up eight earned runs on nine hits while walking two hitters.
All three long balls Halladay allowed, including two in the first inning, were two-run homers. Reliever Chad Durbin followed by allowing two more two-run bombs in the fifth inning.
The Phillies (12-15) got solo home run from Chase Utley and Delmon Young, who was playing in his first game of the season after being activated from the disabled list.
Ryan Raburn went 3 for 4 with two home runs and three RBI for Cleveland (11-13), which had 17 hits in the game. Rayburn has hit four home runs in his last two games.
