The Texas Rangers beat the Cleveland Indians 5-2 Wednesday night but might not know the real result of the game until later this week.

That's because even though the Rangers won to drop their magic number to clinching the American League West to 18, they played part of the game without most valuable player candidates Josh Hamilton and Adrian Beltre. Each of them left with injuries.

Beltre strained his left shoulder making a diving stop on a grounder in the second inning. He had already homered in the game and stayed in the contest until the fifth inning before leaving. He had a precautionary MRI but the results won't be known until Thursday.
