Indians victim of Texas-sized whooping

By the time the Tribe’s offense could get in gear Friday, it was way too late. The Texas Rangers scored eight through the first four innings and went on to demolish the Indians 12-4. Paul Byrd surrendered those eight runs, although only four of them were earned thanks to errors by Ryan Garko and Kevin Kouzmanoff. The Rangers got three more in the eighth to blow the game wide open. Carlos Lee finished with two of Texas’ three homers on the night. The Tribe equalled the Ranger hit total but just could not come up with the key hit, leaving 10 runners on base. Hector Luna had two RBIs and Joe Inglett had three hits to lead the Indians offense.

The Indians have now lost four in a row and nine of 11. Cavs season cannot come soon enough.
