Indians: Manny Ramirez is batting .408 with nine homers and 80 RBIs with the bases loaded during his career. He has 23 RBIs in 16 May games. Since 1996, Cleveland is 13-8 at Comiskey Park. Dwight Gooden's previous longest outing this season was six innings against Texas, his only other victory.
Rangers: This was Texas' third consecutive with at least one umpire missing a portion of the game. Larry Young missed an inning of Monday's game with discomfort in his knee. He could not work last night because of the knee and was replaced by Eric Cooper, who arrived midway through the first inning. Durwood Merrill missed Sunday's Texas-Orioles game with the flu.
