Rangers top Cubs 11-10 after falling behind former ace again The Texas Rangers outscored the Chicago Cubs 11-10 on Sunday after falling behind one of their former aces for the second straight day. With one out in the ninth and the Cubs playing five infielders, Gallo raced home from third base when Pedro Strop's pitch to Nomar Mazara bounced past catcher Willson Contreras and high onto the net behind home plate to give the Rangers a series win after the Cubs' 12-4 victory on opening day. BOX SCORE: RANGERS 11, CUBS 10 Jose Leclerc (1-0) stopped a Chicago rally and got the last four outs for Texas.

(Photo by Jennifer Stewart/Getty Images) CHICAGO (AP) -- The Chicago Cubs have placed backup catcher Victor Caratini on the 10-day injured list after he broke a bone in his left hand.

Caratini is expected to miss four to six weeks after he got hurt on a swing during Thursday night's 2-0 victory over Pittsburgh. He is scheduled for surgery on Monday.

The 25-year-old Caratini had been a pleasant surprise for Chicago, batting .571 with a homer and five RBIs in six games.
