Stamets' grand slam sends Indians past Rangers 10-1
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) --- Rookie shortstop Eric Stamets hit a fourth-inning
grand slam, his first home run of the spring, and the Cleveland Indians beat
the Texas Rangers 10-1 on Monday night.
Kevin Plawecki hit a two-run homer in the ninth, and Greg Allen had a
bases-loaded triple in the eighth.
Stamets will start at shortstop on opening day for the Indians with three-time
All-Star Francisco Lindor going on the injured list with a calf strain.
Carlos Carrasco allowed one run and five hits in 5 2/3 innings for Cleveland.
He struck out four, walked one and hit two batters with pitches.
Ronald Guzman hit his team-leading fifth homer of the spring for Texas.
Rangers starter Edinson Volquez, who missed last season following Tommy John
surgery, gave up four runs and five hits in 3 1/3 innings. He walked three and
plunked one batter with a pitch.
