Ricardo Rodriguez (2-1) absorbed his first setback of the season. The righthander yielded four runs and five hits over seven innings.

Omar Vizquel and Brandon Phillips had two hits apiece for the Tribe, who have lost two in a row after winning two straight. Cleveland dropped the opener by an 8-5 score.

Karim Garcia had his nine-game hitting streak stopped for Cleveland, while outfielder Milton Bradley missed the game with a hamstring injury.

Ellis Burks came into yesterday's game on a 6-for-14 tear with five RBI, but went 0-for-4 in the contest with three strikeouts.
