CLEVELAND (AP) — Ryan Raburn homered twice for the second straight game and the Cleveland Indians hit seven home runs in all, routing the Philadelphia Phillies 14-2 Tuesday night.

The Indians set a major league high this season for homers in a game. Cleveland has won three in a row, outscoring opponents 33-5 in that span.

Philadelphia had won three in a row before Roy Halladay (2-3) got tagged. Activated from the disabled list before the game, Delmon Young homered in his first at-bat for Philadelphia.

Raburn hit a two-run homer in the fifth inning and a solo drive in the seventh. It was the sixth two-homer game of his career, including Monday’s performance against Kansas City.

Cleveland’s first five homers were two-run shots. Carlos Santana, Mark Reynolds and Lonnie Chisenhall homered off Halladay, then Raburn and Michael Brantley homered off Chad Durbin.

Raburn and Drew Stubbs hit back-to-back shots in the seventh against Raul Valdes. The Indians fell one homer short of the franchise record of eight, set in 1997 and matched in 2004.

Halladay gave up eight runs and nine hits in 3 2-3 innings. Coming off three strong outings, he gave up homers in the first to Santana and Reynolds.

Given a 12-1 lead in the fifth, Zach McAllister (2-3) coasted. He gave up two runs in seven innings on solo homers by Young and Chase Utley.

Young, slowed this year while recovering from ankle surgery, homered in the second. He was hit by a pitch in the fifth and singled in the sixth.

The interleague game featured managers who had guided both teams.

Phillies manager Charlie Manuel went 220-190 with the Indians from 2000-2002, while Cleveland’s Terry Francona was 285-363 with Philadelphia from 1997-2000.

Indians outfielder Nick Swisher missed the game with a sore left shoulder, and Francona said he might also sit out Wednesday night. Outfielder Michael Bourn, who hasn’t played since April 14 when he cut his right index finger, was eligible to come off the 15-day disabled list but will be sidelined for at least a few more days.

Swisher, Bourn and Reynolds were key offseason signings for the Indians in the offseason. Reynolds finished April with eight home runs and 22 RBIs.
