Gabbard takes loss
Kason Gabbard started his career with the Rangers with a loss on Thursday, but had the Texas lineup had a little more success against Indians starter Jake Westbrook, the results may have been different for the lefty. Gabbard allowed three runs over 5 2/3 innings, striking out four and walking one. He also threw three wild pitches.

Grady celebrates with win
Grady Sizemore turned a quarter-century old in style on Thursday with a 2-for-3 afternoon at the plate while driving in the Tribe's first two runs. Jake Westbrook won his first game since April 27 with six shutout innings, fanning five while allowing five hits. Victor Martinez hit his 18th long ball in the seventh inning, a solo shot.
