Gentry and Baker Lead Rangers Over Indians 3/11/13
GOODYEAR, Ariz. - Craig Gentry hit a two-run homer off Brett Myers to
pace the Texas Rangers to a 7-6 win over the Cleveland Indians.
Gentry added a single and scored another run. Jeff Baker, a non-roster
invitee for Texas, hit an RBI double and single in his first two at-bats, making
it eight straight plate appearances in which he'd reached base.
Myers, who pitched 70 times in relief last season, threw three scoreless
innings before the Rangers got to him in the fourth for five runs. Myers will be
the Indians' No. 3 starter this season.
Michael Brantley, who had stitches removed from his forearm on Saturday, was
0 for 2 for Cleveland. He had missed 12 games with a cut sustained in a slide
against the Angels.
