Robbie Ross gave a strong audition in his bid to join the Texas rotation, pitching seven shutout innings that led the Rangers over the Cleveland Indians 5-0 Tuesday.
Ross allowed just four hits, striking out eight and walking three.
Michael Choice hit his fourth home run, connecting off Indians starter Josh Tomlin.
Tomlin is competing with Carlos Carrasco for the fourth spot in the rotation. Danny Salazar will start the fifth game.
