Tribe lifted by bookends
Indians score plenty
Leadoff man Grady Sizemore hit two two-run homers, including an inside-the-park job in the Tribe's five-run sixth inning, and No. 9 hitter Aaron Boone offered a pair of two-run singles as the Indians proved too much for Kevin Millwood and the Rangers in Texas' home finale. Brian Sikorski was solid in relief of Jake Westbrook.

Series at a glance:
Home finale a long one
It was a long, slow start for Kevin Millwood, and it ended up being a tough day for Texas. Millwood needed 62 pitches to get through two innings, and the Rangers never recovered after Cleveland's four-run second inning. Miguel Ojeda's two-run double put Texas within one in the fifth, but the Indians quickly countered with five more runs in the sixth inning.
