Indians 2, Rays 1(7)

Tampa Bay's Willy Aybar hit a home run off the Indians' Jensen Lewis in the sixth inning Thursday that was upheld by umpires after a video review, the first use of the technology in Cleveland.

Aybar hit a 1-0 pitch to the right field corner, just out of the reach of Cleveland's Shin-Soo Choo. Replays showed the ball hit the yellow line atop the wall before caroming back into the field of play.

First base umpire Angel Hernandez immediately ruled it a home run, prompting Indians manager Eric Wedge to come out and argue. After a 90-second video review, crew chief Tim Welke confirmed the call.

The home run cut Cleveland's lead to 2-1.
