Indians beat Rangers for 7th straight win

Anthony Reyes came away with a no-decision, but the seven strong innings he gave the Indians bodes well for his future in Cleveland.

Franklin Gutierrez’s tiebreaking single in the ninth inning Sunday night sent the Indians past Texas 4-3 for their season-high seventh straight win and a three-game sweep of the fading Rangers.

Reyes didn’t get the win because Rafael Betancourt walked in the tying run in the eighth, but that didn’t change Cleveland’s reaction to Reyes’ fourth start since coming over in a trade with St. Louis in July.

“I thought he threw the ball very well,” Indians manager Eric Wedge said. “Over the last couple of innings, he picked up a little steam. I think he was sniffing it (a win).”

The Indians were up 3-1 through seven after Reyes threw a season-high 107 pitches, allowing one run and four hits with four strikeouts and four walks.

There were high expectations for Reyes in St. Louis. He won a World Series game for the Cardinals in 2006, then went 2-14 the following year. The Cardinals sent him to the minors twice this season, and he was on the disabled list in June and July with a right elbow strain before being traded to Cleveland.
