Gomes, Santana homer, lead Indians over Rangers

ARLINGTON, Texas — Yan Gomes and Carlos Santana homered and the Cleveland Indians defeated the Texas Rangers 8-3 on Saturday.

The home runs by the last two batters in Cleveland's lineup backed Josh Tomlin (4-2).

Tomlin had his longest appearance this season. The native of Tyler, Texas, left after giving up a leadoff single to Adrian Beltre in the ninth.

It was 1-all before Gomes hit a three-run homer in the sixth off Nick Tepesch (2-2).

Santana capped a four-run seventh with a two-run shot into the right-center field bullpen off Tanner Scheppers. Santana went 2 for 2, walked twice and scored two runs.
