CLEVELAND -- The Cleveland Indians are developing a habit of pulling out late-inning victories.
The Indians were coming off a three-game sweep of the Chicago White Sox that featured two walkoff wins.
"That was nice to see, but I'm not sure we sit there during the game and act surprised," manager Terry Francona said. "Just try to figure out a way to win the game."
Lindor hit the first pitch from Erasmo Ramirez (7-5) into the lower deck in right field for his eighth homer of the season, breaking a 4-all tie. Uribe homered in his third straight game, a two-run shot off Ramirez.
"Whenever we are down we don't think about quitting," Lindor said. "That's the good thing about this team. We believe in each other. We do whatever it takes to come back and win."
Carlos Santana also homered for the AL Central-leading Indians, who have won four straight overall and nine in a row at Progressive Field.
"I actually looked up and saw that and didn't even know it, so I probably don't have a very good answer," Francona said of the home winning streak. "The other games, that was two weeks ago. I think we've played some close games and being at home helps."
Tampa Bay was 9-2 before its current slide, and manager Kevin Cash is remaining optimistic.
"This organization believes, we believe, I believe and I think, most importantly, our players believe we can kind of right this ship," he said.
Tomlin allowed four runs in seven innings. Rays starter Drew Smyly also pitched seven innings and gave up four runs.
Tomlin retired Logan Forsythe to start the game, but second baseman Jason Kipnis booted Miller's routine grounder. The ball rolled into right field and Miller hustled into second on the two-base error.
Longoria hit an 0-1 pitch into the porch in left field for his 18th home run.
The Indians paid tribute to the Cleveland Cavaliers for winning the NBA title, the city's first championship in 52 years. A picture of LeBron James kissing the championship trophy was shown on the scoreboard in the seventh inning, drawing a roar from the crowd of 13,811.
The Cavaliers beat Golden State in Game 7 of the NBA Finals on Sunday night.
