CLEVELAND - Endy Chavez had four hits, and the Texas Rangers overcame a three-run deficit to beat the Cleveland Indians, 7-4, Thursday night.

Yorvit Torrealba drove in two runs, and Nelson Cruz twice doubled to start three-run rallies as the defending AL champions won for the fourth time in their last five road games. Chavez had a run-scoring triple and scored in a three-run sixth against Carlos Carrasco (4-3) that put Texas ahead by 6-3. Since being recalled from triple-A Round Rock on May 14, he is hitting .415 (17 of 41).

The Rangers had only one hit through four innings before tying the score at 3 in the fifth.

Cleveland dropped to 19-7 at home and 20-7 when scoring first. Carrasco couldn't hold a 3-0 lead, but the Indians still have the best record in the AL.
