Drew Pomeranz wasn't expecting one rain delay, let alone two. Tanner Scheppers and Preston Claiborne allowed three runs apiece, while Alex Claudio was somehow a bright spot for the team's relief corps by only allowing two.

Castro suffered a strained right hamstring while running out a ground ball on Monday night in the opener of a four-game series at the Chicago White Sox. "I didn't even realize it was supposed to rain at all tonight", Pomeranz said.

Dustin Pedroia had two hits and drove in a run and Moreland added a sacrifice for Boston, which kept pace with the New York Yankees atop the East.

A night after combining for 24 runs, the Indians and Rangers managed just three Tuesday at Progressive Field.

"It's a lot of fun". "I told him he can't come back to the ballpark today".

Boston manager suspended • Red Sox manager John Farrell was suspended one game after poking umpire Bill Miller in the chest during an animated argument over the weekend. "He got me. He took a good swing".

Cleveland Indians outfielder Austin Jackson was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a left quad strain.

The loss spoiled an otherwise strong performance from Cleveland's pitching staff, as starter Mike Clevinger allowed just two hits, two walks and one earned run over six innings of work against the Rangers. "You always want him to feel good".

"We've had two primary goals with Danny", he said. Still, I like this to be a relatively low-scoring pitchers' duel. Jose Ramirez led off by drawing a walk and stole second.

"Clevinger was keeping us off balance, but Chirinos was able to get the big hit", Banister said. Every Cleveland batter registered at least one hit. Chris Gimenez had a solo homer for Minnesota. Adrian Beltre won it with a two-out homer off Cody Allen in the ninth.

Detroit snapped an ugly eight-game losing streak Sunday. He allowed nine home runs in only 20 2/3 innings.

After the umpiring crew met and decided the balk was the proper call, Farrell became enraged and had a face-to-face argument with Miller.

Twins: Santiago was making his first start since June 6 at Seattle.

"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. To make room on the roster for his return, recently acquired RHP Dillon Gee was sent down to Triple-A Rochester. For him to leave a game raises a flag.

Hamels is 2-0 with a 3.03 ERA in five starts.

Trevor Bauer (6-6, 5.53 ERA) starts for Cleveland on Wednesday.
