Tribe has no Answer for Prince, Throws Game Away Late; Rangers 10, Indians 8
Mike B. | On 26, May 2015
The Indians climbed back from a 3-0 deficit to take a 5-3 lead, then did the same from a 7-5 deficit to take an 8-7 lead on Monday. But the Rangers eventually took advantage of two late errors by Indians pitchers to win the opener of a three-game set, 10-8.
The loss ended the Tribe’s winning streak at six, but they’ve still won eight of their last 11.
Carlos Santana (solo shot) and Roberto Perez (three-run) hit homers, while Jason Kipnis, Jose Ramirez, Michael Bourn and Michael Brantley also had RBI. But throwing errors by Marc Rzepczynski and Zach McAllister allowed the Rangers to re-take the lead for good.
W: Tanner Scheppers (1-0)
L: Marc Rzepczynski (1-2)
S: Shawn Tolleson (4)
HR: Fielder (9, 1st inning off Marcum 1 on, 1 Out); Beltré (6, 1st inning off Marcum 0 on, 1 Out); Andrus (2, 8th inning off McAllister 0 on, 0 Out); Santana (5, 1st inning off Klein 0 on, 1 Out); Pérez (4, 2nd inning off Klein 2 on, 1 Out)
