Clevinger cruises; Indians lose 2-1 to Beltre, Rangers

With the win, the Rangers improved to 39-38 on the season and 17-21 away from Globe Life Park in Arlington, while the Indians fell to 40-36 overall and just 16-21 in front of the home fans at Progressive Field. Tests at that time also revealed no major health issue, and his discomfort was attributed to dehydration. He was expected to return to the dugout Wednesday when the Indians host the Texas Rangers. He will be monitored the next several weeks.

"It's a genuine concern for not just me but the whole staff and the team as well", said Indians bench coach Brad Mills, who served as Francona's bench coach for the Red Sox from 2004-09.

Farrell was ejected for arguing a balk call in the game against the Angels.

Robinson Chirinos broke up his scoreless line in the fifth on a solo shot to the bleachers in left field, his 11 of the campaign.

Farrell was suspended for poking umpire Bill Miller in the chest during an animated argument over the weekend. Eventually, Farrell made contact with Miller and was ejected. He won for the first time in four total starts after losing his previous two decisions since beating the Brewers on June 5. He had a horrid 7.82 ERA and had lost his job as the club's closer. That sort of galvanized effort is part of what has seemed absent at times this season.

Sale (10-3) gave up one run and four hits, increasing his major-league strikeout total to 155. It was his third consecutive game with a homer. He was injured running out a ground ball Monday night against the White Sox.

Allen retired the first two batters with relative ease before Beltre belted his first pitch out to left field for the 450th homer of his career. Ronald Torreyes replaced him in the lineup Tuesday, and the Yankees promoted infielder Tyler Wade from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to take Castro's roster spot.

Braun, Villar return to Brewers • The Milwaukee Brewers activated outfielder Ryan Braun and second baseman Jonathan Villar from the disabled list before opening a three-game series in Cincinnati.

Michael Wacha (4-3), who began the day with an 8.17 ERA over his last seven starts, limited the Reds to one run on five hits in six innings. The Indians got all their runs without any home runs. Grilli recorded a career-high 33 saves with the Pittsburgh Pirates in 2013 and added 24 saves with the Atlanta Braves in 2015.

"It's a scary place to get caught up in, the 'where's this going to lead, ' 'what's going to happen to my future, ' 'what is the next day, '" Tebow said.

Braun missed 31 games because of a left calf strain.

In Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Twins, Allen allowed a leadoff homer to Brian Dozier to break a 2-2 tie in the eighth inning.
