CLEVELAND (AP) - The Indians trailed by seven runs and were without manager Terry Francona by the fourth inning Monday night.

"Mr. Francona also wanted to express that medical personnel have not yet ruled out an allergy to Bench Coach Brad Mills", the Indians said in a news release. It's not clear when Francona left.

For Texas, Elvis Andrus had three hits, including two home runs and four RBIs, and Adrian Beltre hit a three-run homer. "And then all of a sudden we started to come back, and everything else changed on the way in". He has 46 strikeouts with 22 walks this season and a 1.26 WHIP.

"When you score nine runs, you expect to win a baseball game, but it didn't happen, and it doesn't feel good", Texas manager Jeff Banister said.

LOS ANGELES - Ricky Nolasco broke a long personal streak of losses and the Dodgers' 10-game winning streak in the Angels' shutout win over their crosstown rival.

The Cleveland Indians will attempt to shift the narrative that they can't seem to win at home as the Texas Rangers come to town for a four-game series. He had his first two major league hits, a home run and double, in a start at second base on Sunday at Yankee Stadium.

Chris Herrmann led off the first inning with a homer and Greinke (9-4) allowed a run and three hits with five strikeouts.

Dan Otero could not silence the opposition at the plate, allowing a home run to Andrus, his second of the game and second career multi-homer performance (9/24/2016).

"We went from how we were going to work things out and getting through this thing being being down the seven runs", Mills said. The Nats have seen a lot of late leads get away this season and hope the 35-year-old reliever can boost them. Lucroy vetoed a trade last July that would have sent him from the Brewers to the Indians.

"Just being able to build relationships with people", Napoli said.
