Last updated on Wednesday, May 11, 2011

(CLEVELAND, OH) - Michael Brantley drew a bases-loaded walk with one out in the bottom of the ninth as the Cleveland Indians edged the Tampa Bay Rays 5-4.

Brantley fell into an 0-2 hole against Rays reliever Kyle Farnsworth before drawing four-straight balls to send Carlos Santana home with the winning run.

Brantley had hit a solo home run earlier in the game as had Cleveland's Grady Sizemore.

Matt Joyce homered and drove in two runs for Tampa Bay while Evan Longoria hit a solo shot in the eighth inning to tie the game at four.

The Rays had a four-game winning streak come to an end.
