ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) – Rajai Davis hit his first homer this spring, a three-run drive that sent the Cleveland Indians over the Texas Rangers 3-1 Saturday.

Cleveland starter Danny Salazar allowed one run and six hits in five innings. He struck out five, including his last four batters.

Mitch Moreland singled down the right-field line to score Ian Desmond following a pair of two-out walks in the first inning with Texas’ run.

Holland gave up four hits, walked one and struck out one in three innings.
