Elvis Andrus jacked his eighth and ninth home runs, the latter marking a career high.

"I'm out there to get three outs, help the team try to win a ballgame", Allen said. "Hopefully I can accumulate some more". Last season, he missed an August game after experiencing chest pains.

What you need to know: After losing their first seven one-run games on the road this season, the Rangers have now won consecutive one-run road games.

The Rangers have some nice hitters on their hands this year.

"It's an unbelievable thing that happened, being able to turn it into something special to raise money for kids", he said.

The Tribe skipper left Monday night's home game early with an unspecified health issue.

The loss spoiled an otherwise strong performance from Cleveland's pitching staff, as starter Mike Clevinger allowed just two hits, two walks and one earned run over six innings of work against the Rangers. "I just tried to change speeds and stay out of the middle of the plate".

Cole Hamels made his first start since April 26 but was tagged for seven runs in just over four innings.

Robinson is 2-for-6 with a homer and one RBI in two games over three stints with the Rangers this season. Lonnie Chisenhall followed with a soft single to center that scored Ramirez with Cleveland's only run. He retired the last 12 batters he faced, including all five of his strikeouts.

Mills managed the rest of Monday's game, which the Indians went on to win 15-9, and acted as manger Tuesday night against the Texas Rangers.

They are still working through where Salazar will make that start, but it will likely be Akron.

Michael Brantley returned to the lineup for the first time since June 14, going 1-for-4 with a single in the ninth inning.

Danny Salazar, on the 10-day disabled list with a sore right shoulder, threw a simulated game at Double-A Akron on Monday. Beltre crushed Allen's first pitch, a shoulder-high fastball, sending a high arching shot into the left field bleachers for the 450 homer of his career and second of the series. It pushed the Rangers back above.500 to 39-38.

The Indians was hopeful that Austin Jackson's recent injury to his left quad wasn't anything more than a cramp, but he will likely miss the next few weeks after being placed on the 10-day disabled list Tuesday. Cleveland is also 1-5 in Bauer's last six Wednesday starts and 4-0 in Bauer's last four starts versus the AL West.
