CLEVELAND (AP) - Ryan Raburn's three-run homer in the 11th inning off Jason Frasor gave the Cleveland Indians a wild and sloppy 11-8 win over the Texas Rangers on Friday night.

After Asdrubal Cabrera and Carlos Santana singled off Frasor (0-2), Raburn pulled a 2-1 pitch onto the home-run porch in left to rescue the Indians, who blew a 7-1 lead and nearly lost to a Texas team that committed three errors and had three wild pitches.

As he neared home plate, Raburn flipped his helmet high into the air and was pummeled by his teammates who doused him with water.

It was the seventh walk-off win this season for the Indians, who began a stretch of 14 of 17 games at home.

Bryan Shaw (1-2), Cleveland's fifth reliever, stranded the go-ahead run at third in the 11th, and the Indians stayed within three games of first-place Detroit in the AL Central.
