Recap

Michael Kirkman picked up his first major league win and Endy Chavez went 4-for-4 as the Texas Rangers rallied for a 7-4 road win over the Cleveland Indians on Thursday night.
 
Trailing 3-0, the Rangers scored three times in the fifth inning and added three more in the sixth to pull away.

Yorvit Torrealba, who drove in two runs, snapped a tie in the sixth with a sacrifice fly. Chavez's RBI triple and a throwing error by catcher Carlos Santana added two more runs in the frame.
 
Neftali Feliz pitched the ninth for his 12th save of the season.

Kirkman (1-0) relieved starter Dave Bush to begin the fifth and allowed one run in three innings. Bush was making a spot start in place of Matt Harrison, who was scratched because of a blister. Bush gave up three runs in the second, but otherwise held the Indians scoreless.
 
Carlos Carrasco (4-3) allowed six runs in six innings to take the loss.
