Santana, Carrasco lead Indians past Rangers 12-3

CLEVELAND (AP) - Carlos Santana capped and eight-run third inning with a three-run homer, leading the Cleveland Indians past Texas 12-3 on Wednesday to end the Rangers' seven-game winning streak.

Carlos Carrasco (6-4) allowed only Robinson Chirinos' solo homer in the fifth while pitching eight sharp innings. The right-hander held Texas to five hits and struck out eight.

Texas starter Colby Lewis (4-3) allowed 10 runs and 11 hits in 2 2-3 innings. He was chased in the third when the Indians sent 12 men to the plate.

The lopsided loss ended Texas' seven-game winning streak.

Josh Hamilton singled in the seventh for his first hit since returning to the Rangers on Monday, but was thrown out by left fielder Mike Aviles trying for a double. Hamilton is 1 for 11 in three games after being acquired from the Angels on April 27.
