Texas Rangers Defeat the Cleveland Indians 7 – 4

The Texas Rangers defeated the Cleveland Indians last night 7 – 4 in Cleveland.

The Rangers were down 3 – 0 after 4 innings, but then their bats got hot. The Rangers scored 6 runs over the 5th and 6th inning. 2 of the Rangers scores came on throwing errors.

One on a wild pitch that the man on 3rd Endy Chavez tried to capitalize on, after the wild pitch Chavez thought about running but trotted back to the bag. That is until the Indian’s catcher Carlos Santana missed the pitcher Carlos Carrasco who was covering home, allowing Chavez to score.

Chavez had previously missed the last 2 seasons with knee injuries but had 4 hits last night and has been batting .451 since being called up from Triple A Round rock.

runs in the 2nd inning. Michael Kirkman came in to replace Bush and only gave up 1 run to get his first career win.

Last night was the first time since May 2008 the Rangers did not strike out.

This is the 8th win in 9 meetings for the Rangers against the Indians.

The Rangers and Indians will play game 2 of their 4 game series tonight at 6 o’clock.
