The Indians are third in the league in stolen bases. Pitching has been woeful in Cleveland as the Indians rank last in the league in runs against, starters ERA and bullpen ERA.

Last night, the Cleveland Indians hit two home runs in the first inning and the Rangers never recovered. Tonight is game two of the series between the last place team in the AL East and the last place team in the AL West as the Cleveland Indians take on the Texas Rangers.

The trading deadline has passed but rumor has it that CF Rick Monday wants to leave the Chicago Cubs.

The Rangers took the Orioles to extra innings last night. Then Horacio Pina happened. But, good news Texas Rangers fans. Pina's contract expires at the end of the 1973 season. Hopefully they won't re-sign him. Tonight is Game 2 of the series against the Orioles.

San Diego C Bob Barton has a ruptured medial collateral ligament and is expected to miss 9 months.

The Rangers are 2-4 on their homestand and have six more games to play before hitting the road again. They host the Yankees in a 3 game weekend series. These aren't your daddy's Bronx Bombers as only two teams in the American League have hit fewer home runs than New York. The Yankees lead the season series 5-4.

Boston RF Reggie Smith has a dislocated shoulder and will miss the next three months.
