Ryan Raburn tied a career high with four hits, Trevor Bauer allowed one hit in five strong innings for his first American League win, and the Cleveland Indians beat the Philadelphia Phillies 6-0 on Wednesday night.

Raburn, coming off back-to-back two-homer games, drove in two runs with a single in the third and a double in the fifth. He has 12 hits in his last 14 at-bats, a stretch that began Sunday.

The Indians have won a season-high four straight games in which they have outscored their opponents 39-5.

Bauer (1-1), called up from Triple-A Columbus before the game, walked six while striking out five and combined with four relievers for the shutout.

Cliff Lee (2-2), pitching against the Indians for the first time since Cleveland dealt him to Philadelphia during the 2009 season, allowed five runs in six innings.
