ARLINGTON -- Casey Blake homered twice and matched a career high with seven RBIs before Ben Francisco hit a tiebreaking two-run homer to power the Cleveland Indians past the Texas Rangers 13-9.
Francisco's homer in the seventh came on the first pitch by reliever Joaquin Benoit, breaking an 8-8 tie after the Indians had blown a five-run lead Monday night.
Blake hit two-run homers in the second and third innings, then
added a three-run double in the fourth that made it 8-3. The seven
RBIs are the most by an American League player this season.
