12-19 - Rangers overcome mistake at The Jake, beat Tribe 8-6 in 12

The Rangers take a wild one from the Indians in extras

MLB: Texas Rangers at Cleveland Indians Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

A tale in three tweets:

Rangers lead 6-0 after a seventh inning with everything going well in a game for maybe the third time this season.

Uh oh, the Indians scored twice. You know where this is headed.

The Indians tie it in the ninth on a two-out, two-strike grand slam. lol me? lol Rangers.

Luckily for us, Texas has Joey Gallo and Isiah “Probably Michael Young” Kiner-Falefa. And, despite the drama, the Rangers are now guaranteed at worst a .500 road trip.

Player of the Game: Doug Fister had his best outing as a Ranger going 6 23 innings and allowing just two (unearned - though he committed the error) runs on six hits while striking out four.

Up Next: The Rangers and Indians conclude this series with a 12:10 pm CT rubber match finale from Progressive Field. Matt Moore will try to keep building on a couple of positive outings while Texas will have to deal with Corey Kluber.
