The Indians scored in the seventh, the eighth, and the ninth to win a game that started badly.
Corey Kluber served up three home run balls in the first three innings but they accounted for all of Texas’ scoring and Kluber managed to finish six, down 5-3.
Then Yandy Diaz doubled and Yu Darvish got wild, giving him third and the plate on wild pitches.
Edwin Encarnacion tied the game with a home run in the eighth and the Tribe won it with three in the ninth off of Sam Dyson. It’s early, but Cleveland looks like last year could be a preview for what’s to come.
Rougned Odor homered in each of his first two at-bats; Nomar Mazara hit it hard a couple of times; and Carlos Gomez hit a bomb, but the Rangers’ bullpen draped those early bright spots.
It looked especially bad next to Cleveland’s pen and had Texas not hit Kluber early, Monday’s game would have been ugly.
It shouldn’t count on doing the same to Carlos Carrasco in any way shape or form tonight. The Venezuelan is back, healthy, and on my Cy Young short list.
While Cleveland could struggle a little bit against lefties this season (they’ll turn around Santana, Lindor, Ramirez and neutralize Brantley), Martin Perez isn’t a left-hander of particularly high quality and doesn’t inspire any bold expectations inside of me.

Free Cleveland Indians vs. Texas Rangers MLB Prediction: Carrasco picks up where he left off last season.
It was two pitches into a mid-September start when Carlos Carrasco took a line drive off his hand. A broken bone kept him out of the playoffs but shouldn’t affect him long-term.

Games in Texas have the tendency to get stretched out so we’ll lay the run-and-a-half.
