Josh Tomlin threw eight innings allowing only three runs to pitch the Indians past Texas 8-3. Tomlin earned his fourth win of the year in a tough park to pitch in.
The Cleveland offense was carried by the bottom of the order, the eighth and ninth hitters. Carlos Santana walked twice, had two hits and slugged a two-run homer. Yan Gomes belted a three-run shot. Former Ranger David Murphy had three hits on the day.
The win got the Indians back to .500 on the year, they are now 31-31. Justin Masterson will take the mound on Sunday.
