Cleveland Indians offense erupts in a 12-2 win over Texas Rangers

The Indians on Aug. 1 scored 11 runs on 14 hits. Then came the sixth inning. For a team that said goodbye to two traded teammates in the previous two days, the Indians could use a laugher, and, on Aug. 1, they got one as the Tribe walloped the Texas Rangers, 12-2. Michael Brantley had three hits - in the first four innings - and David Murphy had four hits as the Indians exploded for 16 hits in a game that was essentially over after the Indians scored six runs in the fifth inning.

Murphy's 4-for-4 night leads Indians to 12-2 blowout of his former Texas Rangers team

David Murphy’s fingerprints were all over the Indians 12-2 blowout win over the Texas Rangers Friday at Progressive Field – in some really good ways and a few head-scratching ways as well. Against his former team, the first-year Indians right fielder went 4-for-4 with two doubles and two RBI and threw a runner out at the plate on a perfect one-hop throw that ended a promising second inning for the Rangers without a run scoring. But Murphy also was tagged out on an odd fielder’s choice play in the bottom of the inning on some ill-advised base running. In addition, Murphy was charged...

Rapid Reaction: Indians 12, Rangers 2

CLEVELAND -- In what was the first night of a 10-game road trip, the Texas Rangers could not have started things off on a worse note. Though they had won all four series openers since the All-Star break and most recently took two of three games from the New York Yankees, the Rangers fell victim to subpar pitching and a Cleveland Indians team that simply would not stop hitting. The end result was a 12-2 drubbing. But this one wasn’t even as close as the final score would ultimately dictate, as every Indians starter would register at least one hit and their pitching was downright dominant...

The short outing wasn’t a blip on the radar screen, either. In his past seven starts for the Indians, he’s 0-4 with a 9.88 ERA.Some 15 hours after sounding surprised at the thought of sending him down, Francona’s...
