Rangers spoil Clevinger's return with 7-2 win over Indians

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) Lance Lynn had another quality start, Danny Santana homered and the Texas Rangers beat Cleveland 7-2 on Monday night to spoil Mike Clevinger's return from the injured list.

Lynn (8-4) struck out nine without a walk and gave up one run over seven innings. The veteran right-hander, in his first season with Texas, has gone at least six innings in 10 consecutive starts, allowing three runs or fewer in the last eight.

Santana hit a two-run homer after Willie Calhoun's two-out walk in the fourth. Clevinger was done after consecutive two-out walks in the fifth, with both of those scoring to make it 5-1 when Elvis Andrus doubled on reliever Tyler Clippard's second pitch.
