CLEVELAND -- Ryan Raburn has been so good at the plate, he's now getting his name chanted when he takes the field.
Raburn, coming off back-to-back two-homer games, had an RBI single in the third and a run-scoring double in the fifth. He has 12 hits in his last 14 at-bats, a stretch that began Sunday, while totaling four homers, nine RBI and five runs scored in the last four games.
Raburn has taken advantage of increased playing time due to injuries to Nick Swisher and Michael Bourn. Over his last seven games, he's batting .500 (15 for 30) and has raised his average from .195 to .364.

"When you plug a guy in, whether it's injury or a doubleheader or whatever, and he gets this hot, that's such an added bonus," Indians manager Terry Francona said of Raburn, who was unavailable for comment following the game. "You can't flip a switch on when a guy plays, but he's been so hot. We've been able to hit him all over the lineup."
Trevor Bauer allowed one hit in five strong innings for his first American League win, despite allowing six walks and pitching out of constant trouble. Bauer (1-1), called up from Triple-A Columbus before the game, struck out five and combined with four relievers for the shutout.
The Indians have won a season-high four straight games in which they have outscored their opponents 39-5, including a 14-2 win over the Phillies on Tuesday.
"The Indians beat up on us these two games," Phillies manager Charlie Manuel said. "They took it to us pretty good. They've got a lot of energy and are playing real good."
Cliff Lee, pitching against the Indians for the first time since Cleveland dealt him to Philadelphia during the 2009 season, allowed five runs in six innings. Lee (2-2) has given up 13 runs and 26 hits in 18 innings in his last three starts.
Cleveland fans have noticed how well Raburn is hitting. Fans seated in right field chanted his name while he was in the field and most of the 12,730 in attendance took up the chant as he struck out in the eighth inning.
"Everybody would like to play every day," Francona said. "That's why guys are good. He has taken this opportunity and made the most of it. This will serve him well down the road."
Raburn, who was 2 for 19 with seven strikeouts in his career against Lee coming in, singled in the second when the Indians took a 1-0 lead on Mike Aviles' sacrifice fly. Raburn's infield hit in the third capped Cleveland's three-run rally and his RBI double in the fifth gave the Indians a five-run lead. He added a bloop single in the seventh.
Asdrubal Cabrera had a two-run double in the third while Michael Brantley had three hits.
Bauer was likely making a spot start as the Indians needed an extra starter because of a rainout last week. The right-hander, who walked seven in five innings in his first start against Tampa Bay on April 6, didn't allow a hit until Domonic Brown's two-out single in the fourth. Raburn took an extra base hit away from Ryan Howard with a catch at the wall in right field earlier in the inning.
Bauer walked the first two hitters in the fifth, but retired Jimmy Rollins, Michael Young and Chase Utley to end the inning.
"For whatever reason, I lock in more when guys are on base," Bauer said. "I'm a real competitor. I don't like giving up runs."
Cleveland was the only team Lee hadn't faced in his career. Lee won the AL Cy Young Award with the Indians in 2008, going 22-3 with a 2.54 ERA. Cleveland also defeated Roy Halladay, another former Cy Young winner, on Tuesday.
"Their whole team is swinging the bat so well, you just have to credit them," Lee said. "Raburn had another big game, but so did a lot of guys."
Swisher missed his second straight game because of a sore left shoulder.
Delmon Young started at designated hitter for the second straight game for the Phillies. Manager Charlie Manuel planned on playing Young in right field, but he was struck on his throwing elbow by a pitch from Zach McAllister on Tuesday. Making his season debut in that game, Young homered in his first-bat.
Phillies OF Ben Revere had a seventh-inning single, but remains in a 4-for-28 slump. On the season, he is batting .204 with one extra-base hit and five walks in 100 plate appearances. ... Manuel said Delmon Young will be limited to pinch-hitting when the Phillies open a four-game series at home against Miami on Thursday. ... Cabrera, the Indians' everyday shortstop, was the DH while Aviles started at short. ... OF Michael Bourn (lacerated finger) remains sidelined and there's no timetable for his return. ... RHP Brett Myers (sore elbow) will be re-evaluated during the weekend and could be cleared to begin a throwing program. ... The Indians made room for Bauer on their 25-man roster by optioning LHP Nick Hagadone to Triple-A Columbus. Hagadone went 0-0 with a 2.45 ERA in eight relief appearances.
