The Rays didn't play like the Rays on Tuesday.

And they didn't win like them as a result.

A sloppy night -- most evidenced by a season-high 11 walks -- was their downfall at Cleveland. Tampa Bay battled back three times to tie but gave it away in the end, losing 5-4 on a bases-loaded walk by Kyle Farnsworth with one out in the bottom of the ninth.

Earlier, the Rays allowed two runs on a pair of defensive miscues.

"Too many walks, and we made some mistakes that we can't make, also," manager Joe Maddon said. "They scored three runs -- one on a passed ball, one on a bases-loaded walk, and one where we failed to cover second. So out of the five runs they scored, three we kind of gave to them. And that's not our game."

With the loss, the Rays dropped to 20-15 and out of first place in the AL East, and they saw their team-record-matching eight-game road winning streak end. Cleveland earned its 14th consecutive home win.
