Carlos Beltran homers thrice in Colorado
Cleveland Indians right-hander Justin Masterson finally lost Thursday, allowing eight hits, four walks and five runs in 5 2/3 innings to the first-place Tampa Bay Rays. Masterson hadn't given up more than three runs in an outing, and his ERA rose from 2.11 to 2.73. There's probably another earned run of regression here, so be prepared.
