It would be premature and hyperbolic to qualify David Murphy's bases-clearing double as the hit that resurrected the Indians' season.

Still, the right fielder rose to the occasion on Sunday and delivered the clutch run-scoring knock that has eluded the Tribe for weeks.

Murphy's three-run double in the sixth inning on Sunday erased a two-run deficit and paved the way for Cleveland's 6-4 victory against the Blue Jays.

An offseason addition who ranks second on the team in RBIs, Murphy answered the Indians' desperate call for a hit with runners in scoring position. The Tribe entered Sunday's matinee batting just .208 in such situations as a team. By the time Murphy stepped to the plate, Cleveland's hitters had compiled an 0-for-15 mark with runners in scoring position during the series with Toronto.

Murphy and Michael Brantley are responsible for 12 of Cleveland's 17 RBIs over the last week. Brantley opened Sunday's scoring with a solo home run into the Blue Jays' bullpen in the second inning. After Toronto tagged Carlos Carrasco (0-2, 7.31 ERA) for three runs in the top of the fourth, Brantley plated Jason Kipnis with a double to right.

Carrasco breezed through the first three frames, as he retired the first nine batters he encountered. He crumbled in the fourth, however, as Jose Bautista and Juan Francisco greeted him with RBI singles and Brett Lawrie tallied an RBI on a groundout. Carrasco departed after 5 2/3 innings, having allowed four runs on six hits.
