St. Petersburg, FL - Alex Cobb scattered four hits in 7 1-3 innings, Kelly Johnson homered and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Cleveland Indians 6-0 on Saturday night.

Cobb (1-0) struck out six and walked three as the Rays blanked Cleveland for the second consecutive game. Joel Peralta and Cesar Ramos completed a five-hitter.

Tampa Bay got its first hit when Jose Molina had a one-out single in the fourth. Johnson followed with a two-run homer that put the Rays up 3-0.

Indians catcher Lou Marson left the game in the fourth with a cervical-neck strain, when he had a jarring collision with Desmond Jennings.

Jennings walked leading off the third, stole second and third before being thrown out at home on Matt Joyce's grounder. Jennings slammed hard with Marson, who held onto third baseman Lonnie Chisenhall's throw.
