Jhonny Peralta singled home the winning run with one out in the eleventh inning to give the Cleveland Indians an 8 to 7 victory over the Texas Rangers.
Victor Martinez doubled down the right-field line to open the eleventh and took third on a single by Kelly Shoppach. After Jason Michaels struck out, Peralta snapped a 3-for-36 slump with a base hit to score Martinez for the win.
Fernando Cabrera, the last of seven Cleveland pitchers, struck out five over two innings for the win.
The teams combined for 32 strikeouts, with the Rangers fanning a team-record 19 times.
Texas overcame a 6-to-nothing deficit and tied it in the ninth on Michael Young's two-out RBI double off Joe Borowski, who blew his first save chance of the season.
