CLEVELAND -- Tampa Bay manager Joe Maddon had a feeling the Rays would bounce back Sunday. Following Saturdays 5-0 loss to Cleveland -- a game that began 10 hours following Friday nights game that ended at 2:53 a.m. because of three rain delays -- a strong team performance proved Maddon right in an 11-3 win. Evan Longoria and Yunel Escobar hit two-run homers, James Loney added a two-run double and Jeremy Hellickson picked up the victory as Tampa Bay rebounded a day after its six-game winning streak ended. Everything went the Rays way Sunday. Sam Fuld wound up with a triple in the fourth when his drive down the right field line bounced off a ball boy. Fridays game, scheduled to start at 7:05 p.m., was delayed a total of 4 hours and 49 minutes. That left a short turnaround time for Saturdays 1:05 p.m. game in which the Rays managed four hits. Maddon wasnt surprised about how his team responded in Sundays win. "Its a great group of guys," he said. "I can read them pretty well when they walk in the door or in the dugout during the game. (Saturday) was difficult. It just was. Theres no way getting around it. Its not an excuse. Were not making excuses. I felt we were a little fatigued. They came back and did a great job. I trust them. Theyre professional." Indians manager Terry Francona was ejected in the fifth inning by plate umpire Bill Welke for arguing a strike call with Nick Swisher batting. It was his first ejection as Clevelands manager. "I thought his strike zone was inconsistent all day, not just on that one pitch," Francona said. "After the game, I told Bill, In fairness to you, I went back and looked at all the pitches, and I feel stronger now than I did when I was yelling at you from the dugout. " Francona then broke into a small smile and added of the postgame conversation, "I may have cursed." Francona was tossed with the Indians trailing 5-3 after Welke called a strike to Swisher on a 1-0 pitch. Francona, thinking the pitch was low and outside, yelled from the dugout and was quickly ejected. He came on the field and argued with Welke, holding his hands a couple of feet apart, apparently to show how far he thought the pitch was out of the strike zone. Francona fired his gum to the ground before leaving the field and yelled again at Welke when he returned to the dugout. Francona also argued with Welke about a call on the bases in the early hours of Saturday morning. Fuld led off the Rays fourth with a hit down the line in right field. The ball bounced off a ball boy, who attempted to get out of the way as Fuld raced around the bases before finally stopping at third. Francona talked it over with first base umpire Adrian Johnson and second base umpire Fieldin Culbreth, saying Fuld should have been sent back to second. The ruling, however was that the ball boy was in play and didnt intentionally interfere with the ball, and the triple stood. The play brought a chuckle from Maddon. "The ball could have gone farther down," he said. "It could have been a triple either way. Fortunately, Sammy was heads-up enough to keep going." Francona failed to see the humour in the play. "I was agitated because it was explained to me two different ways," he said. "The first time was completely screwed up, which is why I was so worked up. Cubby (Culbreth) let me vent a little bit after that, which I appreciated." Hellickson (3-2) allowed three runs in five innings. "I made a lot of good pitches," he said. "I was right where I wanted to be. Theyre a good hitting team." Zach McAllister (4-5) lasted only 4 1-3 innings -- his shortest start of the season -- and gave up five runs. Escobars homer in the sixth pushed the Rays lead to 7-3. Longoria drove in three runs. He homered to cap a four-run eighth and connected off Matt Langwell, who was facing his first hitter in his major league debut. Loneys double in the first put Tampa Bay ahead. Longoria added an RBI single in the third and Jose Lobatons infield hit made it 4-0 in the fourth. The Indians scored three times with two outs in the fourth. Yan Gomes RBI double and Mike Aviles two-run single cut the lead to 4-3.

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Ohio State scored 10 offensive touchdowns and rolled up a school record 776 yards in beating Bowling Green Saturday, but was it enough to impress coach Urban Meyer?Maybe not yet.After the 77-10 romp, Meyer made it clear that he wants to see what his team can do when the competition gets more difficult, especially in two weeks when the No. 6 Buckeyes have to travel to Oklahoma.Well, its one game, he said. Lets chat in about four weeks and see how were doing.Meyer started the day worried about how his many inexperienced players would perform on the big stage. Thirty Ohio State players were participating in their first college game. Lots of them ended up getting involved in the record-breaking day.The 776 yards topped the 718 yards Ohio State put up against Mount Union in 1930.Eight players scored touchdowns on offense as the Buckeyes (1-0) overpowered the Falcons in front of a crowd of 107,193.Veteran quarterback J.T. Barrett broke a school record in being responsible for seven touchdowns -- six passing and a seventh on the ground. The junior was 21 for 31 for 349 yards and rushed for another 30 before giving way to backup Joe Burrow with 6:30 left in the third quarter.Freshman tailback Mike Weber bullied his way to 136 yards on 19 carries. Curtis Samuel ran for two touchdowns and caught a scoring pass.We definitely want to spread the wealth, Barrett said. Theres only one football, but try to get the ball in the playmakers hands.Ohio State held Bowling Green (0-1) to 244 total yards.We pretty much got taken to the woodshed here today, Bowling Green coach Mike Jinks said.BGs experienced offensive line did a decent job protecting quarterback James Knapke, who was 12 for 33 for 110 yards, but the Falcons couldnt overcome off-target passes and multiple dropped balls.The Falcons only touchdown came in the first quarter when Barretts second pass of the day was picked off by linebacker Brandonn Harris and returned for a 63-yard touchdown.ddddddddddddIts hard to take positives from a butt-whooping like that, Jinks said.THE TAKEAWAYBOWLING GREEN: The Falcons receivers need to start holding on to Knapkes passes if theyre going to have success.Any loss is difficult, but every one is a learning opportunity, Knapke said. Thats the attitude were going to take from it. These young guys got a taste of what its like.OHIO STATE: The Buckeyes did what they wanted: break in a bunch of inexperienced players against a huge underdog. They also showed they have many weapons and stunning team speed.KEY NUMBERSBOWLING GREEN: Bowling Green could manage only 69 yards on the ground. The Falcons primary tailback, Fred Coppet had just 38 yards on 12 carries.OHIO STATE: The 77 points scored are the most by an Ohio State team since a 76-0 win over Florida A&M Sept. 21, 2013. The Buckeyes 417 passing yards rank fourth-most in a single game in school history.POLL IMPLICATIONSOhio State: With No. 3 Oklahomas loss to No. 15 Houston Saturday, the No. 6 Buckeyes could move up.INJURY REPORTStarting defensive tackle Tracy Sprinkle left the game with a leg injury at the end of the first quarter. Meyer said its likely a tendon injury that will end Sprinkles season.UP NEXTBOWLING GREEN: After the loss, the Falcons get their own tuneup game at home next Saturday against North Dakota. The Fighting Hawks, a Big Sky conference team formerly known as the Fighting Sioux, went 7-4 in the last season in the FCS.OHIO STATE: The Buckeyes will get another game at home against an overmatched opponent when Tulsa visits next week.
