Rangers 5, Indians 0
Fausto Carmona allowed two runs on four hits in his third start back in the rotation. (AP)
One night after scoring plenty, the Indians put two hits together to lead off the first, but then the offense dried up vs. the Rangers' Tommy Hunter, who allowed just six hits -- three by Grady Sizemore. Fausto Carmona was solid -- allowing just a two-run double -- but took the loss.
