Today in Tribe History: August 21, 1992

Compiled by Jason Kaminski

On this date in 1992 the Tribe hosted the Texas Rangers at the old Cleveland Stadium. On the mound for Texas was the 45 year old fireballer Nolan Ryan. However, on this night he was anything but untouchable as the Indians roughed him up for 7 runs. Albert Belle got it started early as he deposited a three-run home run into the left field bleachers. Cleveland added four more runs in the fifth, which led to Ryan’s departure. Texas chipped away at the lead but it was too little too late as the Tribe held on for the 8-6 victory. Dennis Cook earned the win, his fifth of the season, and Steve Olin notched his 22nd save.
