The Indians, riding 2,592 feet of muscle and 90 feet of hustle, overwhelmed the Phillies on Tuesday night at Progressive Field.

The Tribe hit seven homers -- three off right-hander Roy Halladay -- to construct a 14-2 rout in front of 10,841 paid.

The Indians (11-13) have won three in a row by a margin of 33-5. They have 45 hits in that span.

Philadelphia (12-15) had won three straight.

"We're really starting to come together," said Tribe designated hitter Jason Giambi, sounding a bit like Lou Brown from "Major League." "Guys are finally starting to get hot."

The Indians were supposed to be tired, having arrived in the middle of the night from Kansas City after a nine-game, 11-day trip. They did not swing like it. The seven homers, five of which were two-run shots, set a franchise record for a home game and fell one shy of the club record. Tuesday marked the fourth time in club history the Indians notched at least seven long balls.

But the earth at the corner of Ontario and Carnegie did not truly shake until after all of the game's runs had scored. With runners on first and second and two outs in the eighth, Giambi beat out a grounder to deep first base.

Giambi did so by hurling his 42-year-old body toward the base, head first. Or something like that.

"I felt like somebody had thrown Mr. Potato Head to the ground," Giambi said. "I asked (first base coach Mike Sarbaugh): Did you see my groin, my knee, my elbow anywhere?" I don't care how old you are, when you smell a hit, you want that hit."

Tribe manager Terry Francona almost came out of his shoes in the dugout.

"I was so darned excited," Francona said. "That's a guy who cares. If you're a young player, after you watch that, if you don't run a ball out, you should be humiliated."

The Giambino's dive got the attention of Tribe General Manager Chris Antonetti.

"That was something, wasn't it?" Antonetti said. "It's not something you see every day."

Ryan Raburn's power display is not common, either. Raburn, subbing in right field, hit two homers for the second straight game. An Indian had not hit multiple homers in consecutive games since Travis Hafner on July 19-20, 2004, at Anaheim. Hafner hit two the first game, three the second.

Raburn's homers are his first four of the season. He is hitting .320 in 15 games.

"Mine usually come in bunches," Raburn said. "I'm just trying to have good at-bats, and right now it's paying off. It's part of the game. Sometimes you get locked in. I'll ride it as long as I can."
