Rangers Vs. Indians: Texas Drops Third Straight In 6-3 Loss To Tribe

After dominating their opponents for the majority of the first month of the season, the Texas Rangers have started May off on the wrong foot registering their first losing streak of the year following a 6-3 loss to the Cleveland Indians on Friday night. The Rangers have now lost their last three games and have dropped five of their last seven.

Rangers' pitcher Colby Lewis (3-1) was handed his first loss of the season when he allowed six runs on 10 hits in 6 2/3 innings pitched against the Indians. He gave up two homeruns; a two-run shot by Shin-Soo Choo in the the second to open the scoring and a solo shot by Jack Hannahan in the third.

Lewis' adversary, Jeanmar Gomez (2-1) registered his second win on the season by holding the offensively potent Rangers to only three runs on eight hits in seven innings pitched.

Johnny Damon and Choo both had a game-high two RBI, which helped power the Tribe to the win. The two teams will pick back up tomorrow night for game two.
