The Cleveland Indians have evened the score.

The Indians received home runs from Eddie Murray and Jim Thome and superb pitching from Ken Hill to beat Seattle 7-0 Saturday night, squaring the best-of-seven American League baseball playoffs at two games apiece.

Game 5 is today in Cleveland. The series returns to Seattle on Tuesday for Game 6 and, if necessary, Game 7.

The Indians did it with a makeshift lineup that was also missing a pair of injured stars, heavy-hitting Albert Belle and catcher Sandy Alomar.

Hill, making his first start and second career appearance in the postseason, took advantage of a big early lead and pitched seven scoreless innings, allowing five hits.
