News: Bauer improved to 7-6, allowing one run on four hits and one walk in 6.1 innings, as the Cleveland Indians defeated the Texas Rangers 5-3 on Wednesday. Bauer struck out three, ending the game with a 5.24 ERA and 1.38 WHIP on the season.
Impact: Bauer was helped by two outstanding defensive plays. Rookie center fielder Bradley Zimmer took away an extra base hit from Shin-Soo Choo with a sliding catch in the fourth. Ramirez made a diving stop of Adrian Beltre's hard grounder behind third base and threw him out with two runners on in the sixth.
